To crush your little world!
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Daniel Jonathan Henk (born December 11, 1972) is an American artist and writer He has produced record-album covers, political cartoons, and a variety of other media. Growing up a disaffected army brat, his early life revolved around a punk rock subculture that included bouts of homelessness and societal rejection.
His beginning career included a year and a half stint drawing political cartoons for Madcap Magazine and illustrating underground projects and fanzines such as Maximum Rock and Roll. In 1997, after struggling through a violent car crash and a knife fight with a crackhead that severed the tendon on his left thumb, he finally managed to attend art school. Receiving some commercial and local gallery acclaim for his artwork, he moved to New York City in an attempt to kick start an art career. Heavily immersing himself in the local hardcore scene, he produced artwork for the bands Shai Hulud, Indecision, Coalesce, Locked in a Vacancy, Beyond Reason, Zombie Apocalypse and various local record labels and venues.
In 2000, he started tattooing, initially working on many musician friends. A year later, in September 2001, he was stricken with brain cancer and underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Three months later, he married fellow tattoo artist Monica Castillo. After a brief venture down south, that included owning a short lived tattoo shop that ended in disaster, he returned to Manhattan and applied himself to art with a renewed fervor. His work started appearing in both a growing number of tattoo magazines and more fine art influenced outlets such as Aphrodesia, and The Tarot Project.
Tragedy struck again in 2007, as his wife of 6 years, Monica Henk, was killed in a motorcycle accident by a hit and run driver. Despite extensive coverage in the local media and vigorous campaigns by both the tattoo and motorcycle community, the culprit was never found.
He moved to Austin, Texas for three years and started doing a regular comic strip entitled "Rollo & Me" for Tattoo Artist Magazine, as well as illustrations for Black Static Magazine, and This is Horror. His long in the making first novel, The Black Seas of Infinity, was published by Anarchy Books in 2011. A limited edition chapbook entitled "Christmas Is Cancelled" came out courtesy of Splatterpunk in 2013.
He's authoring a regular column for Tattoo Revue and Skin Art magazines, and a reissue of his debut novel was put out by Permuted Press in April 2015. A collection of his short stories entitled "Down Highways In The Dark...By Demons Driven" was released by the same publisher in August. He continued his work for independent magazines, doing art for Red Door Magazine, The Horror Zine, Litro Magazine, a slew of books by the imprint Out Of Step, and every issue so far of the British horror zine Splatterpunk. Books such as"The Sopaths" by Piers Anthony, "Splatterpunks Not Dead", and "Splatterpunk Fighting Back" started to feature his artwork on their covers. His third novel "The End of the World" and his seventh book cover debuts this year on the novel "Insatiable".

Wow, your brushwork is amazing.  Some of the best ink work I've seen here.  I absolutely love it.  Expect a lot of faves over the next few days as I go through your gallery.
