I met Andy many years ago when we both worked for a jewellery manufacturing company. He was doing the jewellery designs which were quite amazing. Now he works on portraits of superheroes, famous people and animals. His work is scattered all over North America and as far as Europe with buyers wanting to own his life-like drawings. He has agreed to participate in a 4Q Interview and allow us to show his work.

4Q: When did you start drawing Andy?
AG: I started very young, around age 3 or 4.
4Q: How do you decide which drawing you are going to do when you stare at the blank page? Do you accept commissions?
AG: I do the eyes first. Mostly I have to feel the subject, then see it in my head. Yes I accept commissions.
4Q: Please share a childhood memory or anecdote.
AG: Drawing war tanks on 8.5×11 paper. Green Sherman tanks and Blue Tiger tanks...hours and hours of drawing WW2 battle tanks.
4Q: Tell us about your favorite spot to work and the type of material you use for your drawings.
AG: My antique illustration table, Prismacolor Premier color pencil, on Stonehenge print stock.
