Andrew doesn’t like to talk about himself, so we wrote this for him.
Training early in visual arts at SOTA, the SF School of the Arts, he received studio instruction in drawing and painting through a variety of media–oils, acrylics, watercolors, ink, charcoal, and crayon. He continued at San Jose State University, receiving his B.A. in Fine Arts. He’s currently learning sequential art techniques and working digitally with an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Procreate, and other apps.
Andrew generally aims for a highly realistic style. His eyes hunt for technical skill whenever he visits a gallery. His subjects are generally organic or natural, with a focus on animals. He’s not a big people person, but he does love dogs, animals, and dinosaurs. When he creates something with a person, it’s mostly people he’s close with. He’s also doesn’t mind a cool tree, sporting a tree tattoo himself.
He read a lot of comics as a child and wanted to learn art to make comics. Fine art was a long detour in the painting world, but now he’s back to working on what he’s really passionate about: his own comic book (rumored to be a Western).
