About

My name is Andy Cowley, I’m 29 years old and I like to draw robots. I spend my days being a grown up at work, so when I get home I don’t want to be a grown up any more, and thus I do stuff that made me happy when I was a child.

When I was a child I used to draw and paint prolifically. I did art up to GCSE level but got brutally put off it by my art teacher. I won’t tell the full story but suffice it to say it nipped any aspirations in that direction in the bud. It’s a horrible thought that one vindictive person can destroy the dreams of a child like that… Anyway, that’s beside the point. Until about a year ago, I’d pretty much abandoned anything in this vein, except doodling.

Christmas 2009 I was very poor so I decided to stock up on paint and do a painting for my brother and his wife. It’ll appear on the blog when I’ve photographed it. Long story short, I’m hooked and all I want to do is draw stuff that makes me happy. I’m learning at every step of the way and I’m here for the criticism more than anything. So shout, laugh and point, it’s the only way I’m going to learn!

I work mainly in ink and acrylic paint but also digitally a little bit. I’m happy to take on commissions for paintings and illustrations if you like my work. You can contact me via email here:
