Ghost shrimp are these tiny little transparent shrimps that are supposed to be good at keeping fish tanks clean. These guys are totally unrelated to Dan James, who also happens to work under the moniker, GHOSTSHRIMP. Dan is a 28 year old illustrator who’s worked for companies like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, as well as doing a ton of band illustartions and worked for the New York Times as well.

It’s hard to sum up what Dan’s work is like, though I want to say weird and slight effed up. I mean those descriptions as a complete compliment. I love people who can draw weird shit and make it look brilliant. His style also looks slightly inspired by wood block printing, which is kind of interesting as well. Definitely have a looksie at his portfolios, he’s got a ton of great work to check out.
