Andrew Johnstone

Framed Postcard; Crocodile


Andrew Johnstone works in a careful, precise and deliberate way - a style that shines through in any medium he chooses. He works in textiles, ceramics and illustration, often depicting animals, transport and portraits.

Andrew's work was greatly inspired by his visits to Manchester Museum. With Andrew working alongside both Manchester Museum & Venture Arts, these digital drawings were made and fabricated in Postcard form.
