I was happy to stumble upon Andy's studio recently and was really excited to see what he was working on. There's a great new body of work (like Adjative's Daughter, Portrait Grouping, and For the Sake of the Song) where he is exploring many different ways of mark making in portraiture. I'm surprised with how well he is able to pull this off. So, enjoy these older works as well and check out his website here.
