Danny Flynn (born in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire) is an English fantasy and science fiction artist. He attended St Augustine Webster Primary School and High Ridge Comprehensive in his birth town Scunthorpe before taking a degree in Illustration at Kingston upon Thames University.

Since the mid-1980s, Flynn has illustrated covers for hundreds of novels, including for well-known authors, such as Frederik Pohl, Greg Bear, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, who commented: "Danny has the ability to blend real objects into imaginary landscapes, evoking the true sense of wonder which is really at the heart of all good Science Fiction and Fantasy." Danny has also worked for games companies Electronic Arts and Traveller's Tales.


Danny has spent many years developing a solo fantasy project for children - creating hundreds of quirky and colourful creatures who live inside the Moon. To date, there are over 200 characters.

In 2016 Danny was noted in an article on CNN as a space artist who paints science fiction landscapes.[1]
