Danimation artist and resident madman Daniel R. Hilton brings his wacky, one-of-a-kind art to the world. Whether it be comics, cartoons, illustration, caricatures, or any other artistic avenue, Daniel’s Danimation seeks to keep the world laughing while working to revamp the cartooning world. Treading the line between satirical fun and half-witted social commentary, this unique new wave of art madness seeks to breathe new life into a timeless American tradition.
Born and raised all over New Jersey, Hilton always had a passion for comic arts and illustration, starting from a young age. Watching cartoons and reading comics in awe may have gotten the gears turning, but a childhood filled with imagination and a love of art saw Hilton's interests soon become a dream. That passion would eventually lead him to putting himself through college, eventually earning an Associate's Degree in Fine Arts and Visual Arts from the County College of Morris in 2015. With his fine art essentials out of the way, Hilton was then able to pursue and earn a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts in Illustration and Animation from Montclair State University in 2018.
Today, Hilton works to maintain Danimation while constantly producing new artwork, and looking for new challenges and projects! Some of Hilton's personal favorite things include art (duh), comic books, cartoons, movies (especially scary ones!), junk food, learning, cats, meeting new friends, and traveling to conventions.
