Biography   Dan Sweeney

Dan Sweeney, a native of Sacramento, California, began his career as a newspaper illustrator for the San Francisco Chronicle.

Sweeney also painted posters for theater lobbies, which led to doing travel posters. He began work for several steamship lines and traveled around the world, to many out-of-the-way places, doing background research for unusual poster subjects. One of his most successful series of pictures was of pirate subjects for the Grace Lines.

For many years, Sweeney was a steady contributor of fiction illustrations to Collier's magazine, particularly of sea and Western subjects rendered in wash or transparent watercolor.
