Cartoonist and digital artist Daniel J. Hogan likes to focus his skills on creating illustrations that make people smile. For this exhibition, "Found Cartoons," Hogan searched watercolor shapes of his creation for hidden images and then, once found, he used ink to define the image within the shape. These colorful cartoons are both whimsical and imaginative and will delight art lovers of all ages.
