Danny Allain is a local artist who hails from the little town of DeQuincy. A graduate of McNeese, he earned a degree in art as well as teaching. He was no novice to the classroom: Danny began teaching a Leisure Learning class at McNeese when he was only sixteen, and continued to do so every summer until 2014. After spending six years teaching elementary school art, he left the classroom to pursue his first love of creating art for himself and fellow art lovers. Having had a love of comic books since early childhood, it's no surprise Danny creates his own. He has several self-published works (both written and drawn entirely by himself), including a zombie western graphic novel titled "Dead Reckoning". His current project is a graphic novel for all ages, "The King's Lost Ruby" a project that began as an amusement for his young daughter, but quickly took on a life of it's own. It's a fairy story, full of fun and adventure, as entertaining and suitable for adults as small children. His talents don't end on paper, however. Danny is an accomplished muralist, with works in many local landmarks. From the Civic Center, to private homes and businesses as well as multiple murals in downtown DeQuincy, Danny's work can be enjoyed in several spots in SWLA. He is currently collaborating with talented designer Erik Jessen to implement a series of colorful murals within Millennium Park. Danny has a passion for creating art, teaching art, and fostering a love of art within his community as one of the driving forces behind the local group SWLArt. He is truly talented, genuine, and kind, expect many great things to come from this local powerhouse. Check him out on Facebook
