Daniel J. O’Brien is a Trinidadian born author and illustrator currently residing in New York with his fantastic partner, Ashleigh, and his loyal dog, Obbie. He holds a BFA in Illustration from The School of Visual Arts. With that and his love of everything folklore, nature, and science, he is continually fueling his passion for illustration. He uses his honed ability to bring forth exuberant and whimsical illustrations full of life, and vibrant color.
Daniel has written, illustrated, designed, and self-published two children's books. The Carnival Prince and I Am The Midnight Robber are both projects that are near and dear as they represent my Caribbean heritage. He has also teamed up with the small publisher, Caribbean Reads, and illustrated the picture books, The Talking Mango Tree and The Masquerade Dance.
