About Danny Gregory
Danny Gregory has written several internationally best-selling books on art and creativity and is currently writing his thirteenth. He lives in New York City.
Danny is a co-founder of Sketchbook Skool, a production studio that makes films and books and events that shows people how making art can change your life. They have 25 online kourses and 50 teachers and 50,000 students. It’s sort of like art class and self-help combined. They’re kinda like Bob Ross meets Marie Kondo meets Queer Eye. It’s really fun.
Through his books (Shut Your Monkey, Art Before Breakfast, Everyday Matters, An Illustrated Life, The Creative License, etc) and in the several large online communities he oversees, Danny has shown thousands of people how to ignite their inner artists, embrace their creativity and tell the stories of their lives. From Indiana to Indonesia, people who haven’t drawn since grade school have picked up the creative habit and have gone on to publish books of their own and show and sell their artwork.
Danny spent three decades as one of New York’s leading advertising creative directors and has created award-winning, global campaigns for clients like Chase, American Express, IBM, Ford and many others.
