Brian Danhausen is a Michigan based artist. He's been drawing most of his life. He owns Darkwynds Mystic Visions (an art company), is a cosplayer and an author.
His books, Into The AfterLife : Paranormal World and Into The AfterLife: A guide Into Paranormal Investigating deal with the paranormal, an interest of his for most of his life. Into "The AfterLife Paranormal" is a paranormal team he founded and runs with his wife. He's had several encounters with the dead and can be called a medium.
When you see him cosplaying The Joker, you might never guess all that he has going on, besides the great costume. At comic cons like MCCC, he would look just like any other cosplayer (although his costume is among the best). When you approach his booth and start seeing all he does, you have a whole new appreciation for Danhausen.
For more info on Danhausen, you can check out TheFinalNail.com. You can also go to MotorCityComicCon.com to learn all about this year's con, including all of their scheduled guests. Better yet, come out to the 2018 MCCC May 18-20 and see Danhausen and many other talented and famous folks!
