Early life

Dan Brereton 10 Questions With Comics Brewmaster Dan Brereton COMICS

Dan Brereton attended the California College of Arts & Crafts and the Academy of Art College. He stated in a 2014 interview that "One of earliest memories of drawing monsters is from kindergarten. Our teacher asked us one afternoon what we wanted to do with the hour we had left in class and I yelled out, 'Let’s draw monsters!'...So to my mind, anyway, monsters are the purest product of our imaginations, whether they be good or bad or just plain wild. That idea never ceases to inspire me and find it’s way into my work."
