Daniel Fishel: Illustrator 

Your NativeAdVantage:


Daniel Fishel is an illustrator and hand letterer based out of Queens, NY. He is a honoree of the Forbes 30 under 30 (Art/Style), Print Magazines New Visual Artist 15 under 30 and has had work included in the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration and 3x3 Magazine annuals. Since 2008, Daniel has worked with a number of publications and companies including the New York Times, Washington Post, GQ Magazine, Variety Magazine, Newsweek, Audible Books, McSweeney's, Baron Fig, National Public Radio and more. Aside from working on a variety of freelance projects, he is an adjunct professor at both New York City college of Technology and MontClair State University.

What do you do best?

I am an illustrator who tells stories for magazines, newspapers, book publishers, advertisers and more. I also like to create my own stories and turn them into self published zines and sell them on the internet.

What makes you the best?

Why folks choose to work with me is because I have a unique visual style and I am able to make work that is a balance between conceptual and poetic. I acknowledge that I am not the best for every project but the projects I am on bring out the best in me.

Biggest success?

Working with McSweeney's on Nick Hornby's two books and on the Portlandia Activity Book was a true milestone for me. Doing Hornby's book covers gave me a little bit of pressure because he is such a well known author and books tend to live on longer than something I would do for a newspaper. So I had to really do well on that assignment. Also, getting to work on a fun set of tarot cards on the Portlandia Activity book was very liberating because I was given so little feed back on what the art should be. 

What are your aspirations?

Do my best to be inclusive and empathetic to everyone I meet.

Most challenging moment?

The lean early years of my illustration practice were tough. Trying to wrangle enough work up so that you can make a living and have a business is tough in your early twenties. I've had a lot of moments where I considered giving up then but I am glad I stuck with it. I am glad I believed enough that in timemore work with come and I was able to pull myself out it it. 

Favorite Motto:

 “Don't stop believing”

Favorite People:

 My friends and fellow illustrators: Scott Bakal, Jordin Isip, Jen Mussari, Ana Benaroya, Chris Gash, John Malta and Rebekka Dunlap just to name a few.
