It also coincides with the opening of Blueprint’s exhibition Paper City: Urban Utopias at the Royal Academy in London from the 31 July-27 October. The illustration is of a city dinosaur that has been built to regenerate urban areas after an apocalyptic event.

Andrew uses his drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. His work has huge visual impact and draws the viewer closer in to a bright and distorted world.

He was trained in the traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others.

He taught himself digital techniques and now uses a combination of graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen. Not content with screen or paper, Andy is now assaulting windows of Bristol with his unique menagerie.
