danny gregory is a kind of celebrity in my house. my wife introduced me to his work soon after we met.
what i love most about his artwork, his books, and his website is his absolute love of drawing. over the winter holiday this year, i was surprised to receive an email from danny. he had found me through his pal, tommy kane, and just wrote me to say hi. the next time i checked my messages, he’d sent me a drawing… OF ME! that he drew from a photo he found on flickr. i hope you don’t mind, he said. “mind”?! you're danny gregory!!
it took me a few months to reciprocate but i did the same thing: browsed his flickr and surprised him with this portrait.
