If you've ever seen Dan start a painting you were probably there when he finished it too... the guy is a machine! Defntly one of my favorite people in Atlanta and a refreshingly motivational force in the south. just sayin...cool guy doing his own thing and he can hold his drink like a sumo champ!

There are a few artists on Flickr that I anticipate checking out in "Your Contacts" everyday. Dan is way up on that list. Watching his talent explode on the art scene is fun and inspiring. And he's a real nice guy on top of all that.

Dan is a raging story telling mofo. I remember watching his work progress over the years. He's come so far. I truly believe he will take over the world some day and cover it with fur.

Apart from being a genuinely nice guy Dan happens to be one of the most talented artists I know. It’s been fun watching him delve deeper and deeper into his psyche to see what he can conjure up. Maurice Sendak move over!

I love getting "lost" in the imaginary worlds dan:may has created, it eases my mind and sparks my creativity. The creatures give me a nice fuzzy feeling inside.

What else can be said other than absolutely mind blowing, breath taking, artistic beauty? His paintings are like a playground for my imagination, a place to run and frolic in the strange and beautiful. Never stop painting, never stop creating.

Dan may is a totally sick individual. His artwork rules the world. He is able to paint microscopic bacteria without the aid of binoculars. His bright colored universe is a joy to behold. He is maybe the most famous artist in america today.

September 27, 2006

fantastic work!

September 12, 2006

Dans imaginative works push a style that is unique and everlasting. His use of color is advanced and they way he has tamed acrylics is magical. I am always impressed with his latest works and they keep getting stronger.

September 5, 2006

Dan's work is funny, well executed, super creative and clever. I really enjoy taking the trips with 'the wanderer' thru Bob Ross inspired landscapes. Keep on painting your ass off Dan May!

August 20, 2006

Dan's work is a testament to matching quanity and quality. I'm continuely stunned and inspired by his work.

August 19, 2006

Dan's work is created with a true unique and creative flair that is all his own. A true master of color, shape and form. I really admire his ideas/concepts in his work and I am inspired by every post.
