Today we bring to you and showcase the work of David Andrews, a feature which has been long in the works on the site and I’m extremly glad to make it finally possible. Here I will hand over to David to let us know more about his work, experiences and plans for the future.
My name is David Andrews and I’m a freelance illustrator hailing from Chester and currently working in London. I graduated with a degree in Illustration from Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall a few years ago, and have since worked on a variety of projects including pieces for Nursing Times, The Exeter Flying Post and Josef Weinberger Ltd publishers.
The style I use mainly today is the one you see here, with illustrations created using a fairly equal mix of hand-made and digital collage. I’m strongly influenced by a variety of early twentieth-century art, but also by the desire to pare images down to their bare essentials. This combination can lead to a few headaches, since traditionally the Art Deco style (which I turn to a lot) is decorative rather than minimalist!
In between commissions I’ve been known create lino prints, pen and ink caricatures and even the odd theatre costume. I’m a fairly personable chap, so feel free to drop me an email with any old thing and I’ll get back to you. Commissions welcome.
