Today we feature Daniel Angel (@daniwilde on Instagram)! Daniel is from France and presently lives in Madrid.
“Sketching is one of my favorite activities and being able to share it immediately through the web is really fun .”
His name is Daniel Angel…
” My pseudo is @DaniWilde, my friends gave it to me when we were kids; it comes from the action/adventure series “The Persuaders”, it was very successful in France. One of the characters of the series was called Dani Wilde (Tony Curtis) and he was my hero…. I’m French but living in Madrid, Spain. I work as an illustrator, the reality is that I used to draw very well when I was a child but I kind of let it go and forgot about my talent during many years. Nevertheless, ever since I opened my account on Instagram and bought my first tablet I started drawing every day and this has brought me some recognition and success. I really enjoy the possibility of sketching an image and then being able to show my work immediately through internet. The immediate feedback you get is the best thing about it! “
