We love many of illustrations but today we narrowed in on his renditions of the Zodiac signs. They are the creations of Andrew Holder an accomplished illustrator and designer from Southern California. Using a variety of digital and other mixed media, Andrew create original works reflecting his unique style with vibrant colors, intricate lines and pattern-work. His art has been featured in solo and group exhibitions worldwide and is recognized by private collectors as well as commercially. On Staf magazine he says this about himself and his work:
“I have always enjoyed creating. For as long as I can remember, I have always been creating something with whatever I had in hand. As soon as I realized that I could make a career through art, I moved from San Diego to Los Angeles and enrolled in school. Surfing or more specifically, the sea, began to appear in my work inevitably.”
“My most personal works are usually colorful compositions, with flat figures, textures and graphic elements. My goal is to create pieces that, above all, explore the barriers between the artificial world and the natural world.”
“I take inspiration from almost everything around me, or at least I try to keep an open mind to almost everything. I tend to go to auctions or garage sales as much as I can just to take a look and expose myself to things that come out of my daily routine.”
The artist can be found on his website, Facebook and Instagram.

He mixes a unique method of 3D modeling with carefully applied shadow that evoke paper-like sculptures. He writes this about his work:
“Being a strong advocate of experiments on the intersection of digital and physical, I firmly believe that imagination is free from any constraints and boundaries. It is a powerful engine that fuels the creative process allowing to propel the aesthetics of the visual art to new heights. Nowadays, the imagination is further equipped with the latest evolving technologies, which make it possible to refine the visual breakthroughs on the continuous basis.”
