This week I want to share with you an artist that I've loved since I first found his work
in a neat, artsy store in Jackson, WY.
Not only is Brian Andreas an artist, he is also a storyteller.
His short, sweet poem like stories touch upon deep truths in our human experience.
I love how simple, yet profound both the words and images are.
The colors and musings draw me in and captivate me:
"Is willing to accept that she creates her own reality except
for some of the parts where she can't help by wonder
what the hell she was thinking"
Big Strange Family
"I don't think of it as working for world peace,
he said. I think of it as just trying to get along
in a really big strange family."
Angels of Mercy
"Most people don't know there are angels
whose only job is to make sure you don't get
to comfortable and fall asleep and miss your life."
Andreas calls his characters, Story People and has created sculptures, kids posters and blocks, books (I have the one called Mostly True), cards, frames, and totes along with his prints and original sketches all featuring these inspiring, happy characters!
You can find it here at his website!
Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday!
