Daniel Wiseman likes to draw. He likes it so much, he’s made a career out of it. Usually he draws animals wearing clothes, or kids enjoying a good dance party. However, when prodded, he’s been known to draw pretty much anything else. Daniel currently lives in St. Louis, MO with his beautiful wife and his equally beautiful son. When he isn’t drawing, he can usually be found doing one of these great things: Perfecting his biscuit recipe, hiking up a mountain in some faraway location, singing loudly in his car, riding his bike on the mean streets of St. Louis, or napping.
