Andrew’s drawing style is instantly recognisable in everything he creates. Recurring themes in his work include transport, animals, TV and film. He often translates his unique style to hand-stitch, creating intricate textile illustrations.
Andrew Johnstone works in a careful, precise and deliberate way – a style that shines through in any medium he chooses. He has taken to textiles, ceramics, printing and drawn media, often-depicting animals, transport and self-portraits, with a specific reference to 80s and 90s television shows and idents.
Andrew’s passion for drawing was nurtured from a very young age by his family and especially his mum Joan, who spotted his talent when he was eight. Drawing was also very important as it was a means by which the family communicated with Andrew, for example by depicting people or places that they were going to visit.
