PJ ANDREWS 

PJ (Patrick Joseph) Andrews was born in Boston. Although his immediate influences are Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol, PJ’s animated work, however, comes straight from the source - cartoons and cartoon characters. PJ is self taught in the folk art tradition, where his sensibilities blend the world of contemporary pop and folk art with exuberance and flair.

Though simple to the point of elegant, PJ’s “diamond dust” efforts offer a new dimension never before realized within animation art. As he believes characters such as Tweety and Marvin the Martian to be larger than life, PJ accents his rendition of these characters with glitter.

Unprecedented as PJ’s artwork is, the result is nothing less than stunning. While the characters used to explore his technique are often large profiles, his employment of glitter creates an atmosphere in which they seem nearly three dimensional. Literally, it looks as if his characters rise from the canvas.

The process PJ embarks on to create his art is not unlike the traditional approach taken to animation cels. He first sketches the outline, then masks off the areas, which are painted one at a time. As the paint within these areas dries, PJ spreads glitter over their surface, creating the overall rising effect.

Citing himself as having a passion for pop art, PJ believes that by applying his techniques to some of the most beloved animation icons in history, he gives these characters the superstar appearance they truly deserve.
