6 east 68th terrace, Kansas City, MO, 64113
Kansas City-born illustrator, painter, ceramicist and part-time junk collector,
Dick Daniels is a child of the 50’s who blossomed in the full glare of the
psychedelic ’60’s, influenced by the underground comix movement, abandoned
amusement parks, American folk art and cheap commercial packaging.
Daniels worked as an illustrator at the Kansas City Star for five years and
a humor card artist for Hallmark for 25 years.
For extra fun he creates oddball wooden signs painted on found and forgotten
weathered wood in his ramshackle basement studio as well at Hammerspace
Community Workshop, surrounded by a sprawling mass of artifacts from his past,
present and future.
Carnival punks, Rat Fink model kits, wooden processed cheese boxes,
half-finished robots, Madballs, Smurf collectibles, stacks of Roi-Tan cigar boxes,
millions of old plastic and hard rubber toys, boxes of parts and rusty junk.
