MEET DAN-AH

Art Director, Illustrator

Cool girls kick it with cool girls. It's really that simple.

After meeting Sandee, our lovely last BWOB feature, she told me I had to meet Dan-ah, a beautiful illustrator.

So my Creative Director Evan and I went to meet her at her Greenpoint studio and see her work.

Let's just say, after we left her studio, Evan said of Dan-ah's work "That's not illustration. That's a VERY specific brain and a very intricate craft." Her work blew us away. From the dream-like mystery and fantasy behind her paintings, to the meticulous needle work over them, Dan-ah is not just another illustrator. She's exceptional.

And not unlike many other Brooklynites, Dan-ah has another job. She works as an art director on films. She shares her favorite films and directors with us and why. Amelie, Lady Vengeance and Hell Boy II. Yours too, right? —Sarah Kim
