Andrew King    

Born in Kingston, Ontario, Andrew moved to Ottawa in 1991 to study Industrial Design at Carleton University.  During this time, he contributed to the Ottawa Citizen's comics page with a weekly strip entitled "Off The Wall" which was published from 1993 to 1997.  A number of his comics were printed in newspapers across North America through King Features Syndicate.  Andrew followed his love of cartooning and was accepted into the Television Animation program at Algonquin College where he graduated with Honours in 1997. After graduating, Andrew began working in television with a number of local animation studios and continued his freelance design and animation work with studios in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.  Currently Andrew resides in Ottawa, Ontario, where he continues to work as a freelance designer for animated television shows as well as doing conceptual design work for both live action and video game productions. During 2003 while on hiatus between projects, Andrew began to paint and exhibited his first show.  Utilizing his design skills, animation background and unique brand of humour, his works vary from contemporary landscapes to almost graphic cartoon style images. Influenced and inspired by where he grew up, his travels and Prince Edward County where his parents live, his work evokes both humour and emotion through minimalism, lighting and colour. His work has been featured in a number of art exhibitions in Ottawa, Toronto, Guelph and the Muskokas, as well as in galleries across Ontario.  His work appeals to a wide range of audiences and continues to evolve as he progresses his art form.
