A Great Illustrator passes..

The name Dan Varner is probably not well known outside of those who enjoy wildlife and reconstructive illustration. I’ve enjoyed his illustrations of prehistoric sea life for many years and admired his ability to approach the photoreal but maintain the beautiful qualities of paint.

Sadly Dan has passed on after a battle with disease, for those of us who know his art his fantastic contributions will be sorely missed.
