Hi, my name is...
I have been thinking about subscribing for a long time and finally just decided to jump in... I'm excited to improve and add some new tools/techniques to my skill-set. I have always been impressed (and enjoyed) Jake Parker and Will Terry's videos, so that was the initial hook for me.
Ultimately, I just want to get better... always open to learning something new, never satisfied with where I am as an artist/illustrator.
From my site:
"ANDY JEWETT is a published cartoonist living amongst the corn with his lovely wife and four children. I like telling stories, drawing and stuff."
ALSO from my site:
I grew up reading various newspaper strips (Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes were/are huge for me), Mickey Mouse, Uncle Scrooge, Archie Comics, a ton of Heathcliff and any superhero titles my mom would let me have. Always in trouble for drawing on whatever I could get my hands on, the art bug bit early... thankfully I had parents that were very supportive in developing this talent and bought me my first drawing table at age 10.
There was a long time period where I put down my pencils and focused only on a career in design... forgetting almost entirely the world of comics. But a trip to the local comic shop, in 2004, brought it all back and the bug bit me once again. I got involved with a local creators group and joined many forums trying to get back into drawing and specifically creating comics.
Nowadays, I'm busy with freelance work, anthologies, submissions and personal projects. The goal is always to improve as a storyteller.
Feel free to talk to me.
