Angry Dan Interview
Angry Dan writes, draws, and animates poems, songs, and stories. His illustrated short form poetry, published on Instagram, is intended as a conduit to his longer work. His first long-form narrative poem, The Man Who Stood Still Forever, was described as '...ingenious' by The London Economic. He recently attracted the attention of Boy George and Graham Coxon with his dark parody of Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World, written for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
I'm colourblind, so I steal all of my colours from adverts.
I couldn't get anyone to illustrate my poems, so I decided to draw them myself.
I love Roald Dahl's books, Randy Newman's songs, and Woody Allen's films.
Lots of cups of tea and playing piano, interspersed with occasional bouts of productivity.
If I'm not feeling something, I usually just do something else. I write, draw, and play music, so between all of that I can usually find something that feels fluid on any given day. My biggest problem isn't creative block, it's that I'm easily distracted.
Momentum, The Green Party , and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
I'd rather not say.
I wouldn't really describe what I do as freelance. I mean, of course it is sometimes, but the vast majority of the time I don't make my work for money. I just do it because it makes me a little bit happier.
I'm working on a book of illustrated limericks. If that happens, it'll be a dream come true.
