who is Andrew Wildman anyway?
For as long as I can remember I have been drawing. And, with determination and hard work I became one of the lucky ones who have managed to make a living as an artist. I have had the distinct pleasure of working in comics, games and TV on some amazing projects. Some of those were childhood dreams come true. Drawing Spider-man, and X-Men comics for Marvel as well as a number of their other books. Working as a storyboard artist for TV on shows such as Doctor Who and many other amazing things. I have also had the distinct honour of being a significant part of the Transformers universe with many comics and art projects along with appearances at conventions all over the world. But for me there is more to do...
I am returning to my love of art and choosing to draw and paint the things that inspire me. Some of that will be paintings of some of the characters that I have worked on. Some will be original ideas that express something else. When you begin the process of drawing it is then that you see how everything is connected at a fundamental level. The first lines and shades of a drawing that express the human figure are the same as the branches of a tree, the billow of a cloud, the flow of a fabric or the shapes of a sea hewn rock. And that is something worth exploring whether it is as paint on canvas or graphite on paper.
On this website I will be sharing thoughts and images about the work and the processes involved and then expanding on those in a regular email newsletter. So if you want to share in the journey just hit that little button below.
