Andy Council

Andy Council uses his drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. He was trained in the traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others.

Andy says: ‘I use a combination of graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie’.
