Andrew Selby

Andrew Selby
All
Andrew Selby is from London, and went to a school where nearly everyone left to go into the civil service, the military or finance. He was different – he went to art school. Today he volunteers as a careers advisor at the same school for pupils who’d like to do the same.

Beginning his career in the early 90's, Andrew thinks an economic downturn is the ideal time to get started – if you can make it then, you know you have what it takes. He’s worked hard studying the world of illustration and animation, and has taken trips to Laika and Pixar to find out how they do things. One of his biggest inspirations is Saul Steinberg, who he had the immense fortune to visit in New York.

Andrew has written three books about animation. He collects illustration-inspired artefacts that show the vibrancy and versatility of the form, from wooden and vinyl toys, masks, and weather vanes, to jewellery, textiles and furniture.

Training

Andrew studied graphic design specialising in illustration at Leicester Polytechnic.

Approach

No two illustrations start from the same point for Andrew. Sometimes he draws from scratch, sometimes he borrows ideas from his sketchbooks, works over photographs, montages elements together or makes models to shoot. Variety is what keeps his work original and interesting, but he has developed his own distinct drawing style, or visual language.

Style

Andrew's simple motifs and playful colour palette ensures that his work is suited to a wide range of conceptual, narrative and decorative market. He draws, assembles and produces illustrations quickly and effectively for clients needs, whatever time zone they are operating in.
