Allan Daniel McGowan
Artist | Professional | Varied
I studied Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba, Graphic Design at Red River College, and Sciences at the University of Winnipeg.
I spent years working in the motion picture industry on over 70 feature films, various TV shows, documentaries, indie art films and commercials. I spent 3 years away from the movie industry working as a muralist and freelance artist in Mexico.
I grew up back and forth between Winnipeg and Mexico City. I am fluent in Spanish and English.
A partial filmography can be viewed on IMDb at


Rebirth of Sacrifice
ink and coloured pencil on 67 lb cover stock

Do biomechanoids dream of steampunk serpents?

Based heavily on the Maya vision serpent. Through a sacrifice and offering of blood, the vision serpent could be summoned as a portal to ancestors, the Otherworld, and the gods.
Mistress of Mars
ink, watercolour and coloured pencil on 67 lb cover stock

Mostly inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs' Martian series ;) 
Falling to Death
coloured pencil and ink on 67 lb coverstock

No matter how far you fall, Death will always catch you.

Based on the classic period Maya deity of "God A", known more commonly by his post classic name "Ah Puch" or "Ah Pukuh".
