HELLO THERE...

I'm Danny Zabbal, a Toronto-based illustrator, trickster and rascal. I've been been producing comics and illustration in some form or another since 2005, while also actively working in the video game industry. My main inspirations are the people and emotions that surround me every day. I draw from my day-to-day life in Toronto and suffuse my work with a mix of strange pop imagery and honest emotion. My passion is to conjure whimsical images that tell stories and stir the imagination.

When I'm not drawing, you can find me scouring the world for vintage action figures and video games. You might also find me planning pranks so elaborate and precise, they can only be compared to Swiss clocks.
