Column Arts Agency is delighted to announce that a wonderful new illustrator has joined our ranks.
Mr The Beef, aka Andy Hulland, is an artist that creates bright funny characters in a style reminiscent of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the mid-1960s.
Based in Derby, Andy draws influence from mid-century design, the 1980s, old signs, peeling paint, urban decay, brutalist architecture, music, and shadows on bright days. He is also a founding member of illustrators collective Brothers Of The Stripe (BOTS).
Andy specialises in character design, hand-drawn lettering, editorial illustrations, live drawing, and murals. He has worked for the likes of BBC, Orange Mobile, Nottingham City Council, and Shiny Brewery.
Column founder, William Astbury, said: “I’ve followed Andy’s work for a long time through (BOTS) and via live-illustration battle Secret Walls.
“We’ve already had the opportunity to work together on several live illustration workshops and Andy has always done a fantastic job. I really like his straight-forward approach. It’s great that he’s agreed to join Column’s illustration agency.”
Andy added: “I’m really excited to be joining Column Arts Agency, and honoured to be rubbing shoulders with the talent already on the books here.
“Having worked independently for many years, it’ll be fantastic to join forces with Will at Column; and with the support of the agency behind me, I’m looking forward to pushing my practice in exciting new directions.”
