Andrew Groves has some of the most interesting designs I’ve seen lately while browsing portfolios for great artist to feature and promote on the blog. We like to highlight anyone that is worth paying admiring and paying attention to.
A lot of you may be at the beginning and I am sure it is always helpful to have a taste of the level of professionalism you can reach if you love what you do and keep practicing no matter how many rejections you hear.
Andrew, also known as IMAKETHINGS, actually makes things! He is somewhat of a classical type of personality you would see reaching to art as a form of expression.
