Andrew Hem

I was absolutely blown away when I came across the work of Andrew Hem while browsing Steve Kim’s site. There aren’t too many illustrators out there with such a wide variety of styles in their arsenal. Some pieces are quite loose and painterly, and others are really crisp and precise.

You know those portfolios you come across and there’s maybe one or two images? Yea, this is pretty much the opposite of that – you’ll be here for quite awhile:

  • His colour choices are amazing as well. I’ve looked at his work a bunch but never saw that first image. Beautiful!

  • yea i really like the expressive strokes in the first one

  • WOW these are soo good

  • jason de viliiers

    absolutely incredible

  • He just came out with some limited edition prints. Not too pricey, and well worth it.

  • Andrew Hem is amazing. I have been into for a while. I met him at Thinkspace a while ago, uber nice.

  • im often apprehensive about meeting artists i like because if they’re a dick to you it makes it hard to like their work after that. on the flip side it makes it that much cooler when the person is even more rad in real life
