Daniel Locke is an artist and graphic novelist based in Brighton, UK.

His most recent graphic novel Out of Nothing, will be published this November by Nobrow Press. Daniel
s work is featured in many anthologies of contemporary comics, and last year his novella Pneuma was published in the USA by Tinto Press.

Since 2013 much of his work has been informed and shaped by the discoveries of contemporary science. He's worked with Nobrow, Arts Council England, The Wellcome Trust and The National Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

He is currently working on his second full-length graphic novel, Going Home, also to be published by Nobrow Press and a third book, Two Heads, a collaboration with writer Alex Frith and Neuroscientists Uta and Chris Frith. 

Daniel often collaborates with other artists and scientists having worked with David Blandy, Laura Malacart, Karrie Fransman, Joe Decie, Dr Adam Rutherford and Dr Chris Sandom to name a few.
