June Illustrator User Group Meeting
In 1978 Dan moved from Texas to San Francisco to join the staff of Pacific News Service. For the next eight years PNS syndicated his op-ed illustrations to newspapers and magazines in the United States, Europe, Africa and Latin America. In 1984 The Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco gave Dan a one man show retrospective of his political illustrations to coincide with the National Democratic Convention. In 1986 while one of his political illustrations was being banned from the anti-apartheid newspaper Rand Daily Mail by the then racist government of South Africa, another was being given top honors in the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year Publication in the United states.
Since the 90's Dan has worked as a freelance illustrator, Art Director, an adjunct professor of Illustration at California College of Arts and Crafts and the Academy of Art College as well as holding a staff illustrator position at the San Francisco Chronicle.
He has won awards from Print Magazine, Communications Arts Magazine, The Society of Newspaper Design, Step by Step Magazine (both the Japanese and American versions), Western Art Director's Club and was the recipient of the Meritorious Achievement Award from the Media Alliance of San Francisco. A collection of his work was included in the book Illustrator Masters.
Dan lives in San Francisco with his journalist wife, Wendy, and her guitar playing son, Ben (who is a student at SF's School of the Arts) and their smelly and shamefully disobedient dog, Kirby.
Dan's daughter, Mari lives in Austin Texas where she is an educator/administrator working with the deaf community.
Having worked as an editorial illustrator and graphic designer for San Francisco publications since 1984, Lance Jackson has had the opportunity to be part of the ever-transforming digital mash up in the San Francisco Bay Area. Both his digital and traditional portraits have been published on a regular basis on the section covers and on the Editorial and Opinion pages of the San Francisco Chronicle. In addition, he has completed commissions for clients such as Time Magazine, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Sports Illustrated, MacWorld Expo and Dominican College.
Jackson participated in the “Hearts in San Francisco” exhibit in 2004. In 2005 and 2006 his work was shown at the George Krevsky Gallery in San Francisco. Jackson did a presentation of his portraiture for the Oakland Museum, Oakland, Ca. in 2006. His work is included in the collections of Robin and Marsha Williams, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mills College. His illustration work has been published in Communications Arts, Graphis, and Popeye Magazine.
Jackson is an adjunct professor at the California College of Arts.
