Andrew Fairclough is a Los Angeles based Australian Illustrator, Designer and Art Director.
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.
Since then he has worked for a wide range of international clients including GQ, ESPN Magazine, Amex, Penguin Books, Billabong, Ride Snowboards, Nike, Miller Lite, Jack Daniels, Little White Lies, Random House, Wired, Playboy, and The Critical Slide Society.
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.
Often working with a restricted colour palette Andrew’s work seeks to hint at the nostalgia and tactility of found art, whilst also creating something completely new.
Andrew’s work and words have appeared in print and online through Desktop, It’s Nice That, Grain Edit, Leurzers Archive, Creative Review, Computer Arts, Ion, and Design Is Kinky.
In early 2016 Andrew founded True Grit Texture Supply as a one stop shop for some of the worlds finest quality textures, photoshop brushes and resources for the texturally minded creative.
Andrew is available anytime to discuss upcoming projects as well as the textural wonders of mid-90’s photocopiers.
