Helping us bring some outside perspective today is our special guest and Jacky Winter artist Andrew Fairclough.
Andrew is an Australian illustrator, designer and typographer based in LA.
After a misspent youth completing a Business Degree, Andrew moved on to designing skate and snowboard graphics in between bouts of self-instruction and full time work in a design agency in his hometown of Sydney.
Andrew’s work is inspired by mid-century spot illustrations and design as well as vintage sci-fi, comics, surrealism, DIY art culture, and the textural wonders of degraded print.
For many other designers and Illustrators, Andrew might be more well-known as the founder and creative behind the True Grit Texture Supply co - The business he established in 2015 out of his love for all things texture and is now a thriving business in it’s own right.
