Andrew Archer's Asian-Inspired Illustrations

Illustration // Tuesday, July 08, 2014
Andrew Archer is a New Zealand born illustrator currently living in Melbourne, Australia. He uses a healthy mix of traditional and digital techniques to create slopped-up, vibrant, beautifully kinetic illustrations that simply drip with narrative power. Archer is inspired by surrealism and sublime narratives, especially wood block prints, edo period art, ideograms, characterization, travel and Asia. Archer didn't study art when he was younger, but he did eat crayons, which might have had something to do with his off-beat color palettes.

"I grew up with pens and paint but then the personal computer dominated the world and so I had to try it out, which is reflected in my work. I use a healthy mix of both traditional and digital techniques with no real preference of medium. I didn’t take art through my younger years, but I did eat crayons which quite possibly is where my off-beat colour palettes come from" - Andrew Archer

Andrew Archer uses a healthy mix of both traditional and digital techniques, which may help explain his wonderfully graphic approach to his illustrations. His color palettes are wacky, yet stable, to which he accredits to eating crayons as a kid.
