An Andy Art Show Reception

I'm having an art show reception on at 6pm on Friday, September 27th at the Kirkland Performance Center! I have a series of musician paintings on display until the end of October and I'd love if you'd come help me celebrate! The reception will be casual, just bring yourself and come hang out! For more info and directions, please check out the Facebook Event page I made:

Thanks for visiting! I hope to see you at the reception!

Art Show - Two for the Price of Free!

I'm participating in two art shows in and around Seattle, and both exhibitions are free to the public and will be up through October!

The first is an exhibition of my musician paintings, they're on display in the lobby of the Kirkland Performance Center, starting yesterday and hanging until the end of October. Earlier this year, these paintings hung at Monster Art and Clothing in Ballard and now, for your ocular pleasure, they're on the East Side! The ten original paintings are acrylic on canvas and have been described as whimsical, painterly, and silly. Here are directions and info about parking. A reception is in the works, I'll post an update when the date is set.

The second is a group exhibition called Into the Desert at Bluebird Microcreamery and Brewery on Capitol Hill in Seattle. My talented artist friend Joe Garber has written and illustrated a graphic novel called Canyonlands, which I highly recommend. For the launch party, Joe held a desert themed group art show and threw a party. Unfortunately, the party is over, but the artwork is still up through October! Here's a map. And while you're at it, you should read Joe's comic here (for free!) or better yet, order yourself a printed copy here (support the arts and become a champion!).

My painting for Into the Desert is called "Life in the Desert" and is about a gentleman (in the barrel) who has made poor financial decisions. Now he is an indentured servant to a gang of cowgirl bandits, which he doesn't seem to mind. Maybe he's happy because they have him cook their meals and at least he gets to eat. Or maybe he feels comforted because they roll with the fire spirit, the cow spirit, and the cactus spirit. Or maybe he's just happy to be spending time with beautiful cowgirl bandits. In any case, I hope they follow the number one rule of the desert (as stated in Canyonlands): "Always chout for rattlers!"

To wrap things up, here's some sweet Canyonland visuals that Joe whipped up for the launch party. Thanks for visiting!

Ovation Magazine Cover


This is a cover illustration I created for the Kirkland Performance Center. Every year when they release their new season of shows they publish an issue of their Ovation magazine. For this cover, the tagline is "Family Matters Here" and they wanted an image showing performers thanking the audience. KPC had a pretty solid idea of what they were looking for, but I sketched a few different designs just to give them options. 

They liked both sketches A and B, so I did tighter drawings to flesh out the details and compositions.

The client chose design A, so I did two quick color studies...

And then painted up the final amd KPC performed their graphic design magic and there you have it!
