Born to Missouri farmers in a 1970s blizzard, Danny Joe Gibson is a visual artist based out of Kansas City, MO USA. He works in a variety of ways, pending on the day-to-day. From 2001 - 2011 he made a minor footnote of a pile of posters and graphic art under studio name DJG Design. He is married to Millie and has four cats: Shadow, Porchie, Gangy and Clint Eastwood. His habits include destroying junk food; celebrating the films of Paul Thomas Anderson; placing high value on the words of John Steinbeck; and doing the dishes and performing a wide variety of “gettin’ stuff done montages” to the choice catalog of The Boss.

I first discovered Danny’s work in 2004, when I was producing The Little Book of Creativity. It was a freshness, and a high degree of creativity in his work then, and he had 10 full pages in that book. Now, in my new venture of producing the very first eBooks for the graphic design works, I chose to include nearly 200 (check this number —) of his posters in Posters 1 and Posters 2. To put this into perspective, our first 8 eBooks include work from about 750 creative firms from nearly 40 countries. Danny’s work represents nearly 10% of the total work in these books. I see his as a budding superstar of the art world. I am watching his career with a great deal of interest, and anticipation. I can’t wait to see what’s next for him.
