Purchasing Information

If you wish to contact me either to commission an original illustration or to buy an existing one, please see my contact information listed at the bottom of this page on this web site. I am open to negotiation in both cases.

I will generally only sell first, second, one time use, etc., publication rights, but maintain copyright ownership of my work and do not generally accept "work for hire" type assignments. Most of the pieces you've seen on these pages or on my promotional sheets are for sale. If you come across something you'd like to own or use, please contact me and I'm sure we can come to an agreement that satisfies us both.

Under most circumstances I will not be selling you the copyright along with an original painting or drawing. If you wish to own the copyright to a particular piece, assuming I have control of the copyright, there will be a substantial additional charge.
Thank you once again for visiting. Please return as often as you'd like. From time to time I will be changing the artwork and information contained on these pages to keep us all up to date.


Welcome to my web site, and thank you for visiting. On these pages, I am hoping that you will find a style, a technique, an idea, or a particular piece of artwork, that will help you to express something you wish to say graphically.

SHORT BIO

Ted Danielson currently works out of his studio in Carlsbad, CA and likes useing mixed media often in his artwork. Ted enjoys telling a story or trying to emit an emotional feeling or mood with the illustrations he does. Editorial, satire, humor, fantasy and surreal are some of the topics he enjoys depicting. He uses various media to give a different look and textural feel to a piece depending on what the image is meant to communicate to the viewer. Mixed media is often used by Ted to do this, using ink, pastel, acrylic, oil, color pencil and watercolor all within the same piece to build up the effect and strong colors he is looking for. Others needing a gentler approach he may choose only to use one of these mediums.

Ted Danielson received training in Commercial Arts from Madison Area Technical College and Palamar College San Marcos, CA. He has studied Fine Arts, Video Production & Photography at Luther College, Architectural Drafting and Design at Northeast Iowa Technical Institute, and Journalism/Television Production/Mass Communications at the School of Graduate Studies, Drake University. While attending college, he was awarded three internships from Iowa Public Television; KWLC Radio & Luther College Educational Media Department; and Luther College Anthropology/Archaeology Departments.

Danielson received his bachelor's degree in anthropology and has previously worked as a Television Cameraman and Production Assistant assisting in the production of several weekly aired programs for Iowa PBS, as a Historical Archaeolgy Researcher for Luther College Archaeology Department, a Park Ranger for Yosemeti National Park, and a Cultural Resource Archaeologist for the Stanislaus National Forest Service. He has co-authored several research publications for both the California and Iowa State Office's Of Historic Preservation and the Luther College Preuss Library archives.
