Off-beat Illustrations by Andrew Archer

Andrew is a 23 year old illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand. I wish I knew the right words to describe my feelings for his work. If I had to try I think it's probably his kooky style that I really dig-- his off-beat color schemes, low saturation, and cartoon-y figures. Major eye candy. I'm loving it.

I grew up with pens and paint but then the personal computer dominated the world and so I had to try it out, which is reflected in my work. I use a healthy mix of both traditional and digital techniques with no real preference of medium. I didn't take art through my younger years, but I did eat crayons which quite possibly is where my off-beat colour palettes come from.

Check out more from Andrew at his portfolio and let me know what you think via twitter or facebook!
