Andrew Bannecker

Really, really into these lovely illustrations from Andrew Bannecker. Definitely the best beer and shoe prints I’ve seen in a long time. I love how he mixes flat graphics with intricate details. His work has a nice depth to it as well, thanks in part to those great rough textures.

A few (we want more!) of his prints are available from Charming Wall.

Those shoe prints are gorgeous!

I LOVE the shoe print–especially the flat. I would buy that shoe! But the print is expertly done, I love the detail and subtle shading.

Huge fan. Love his work. I agree– we want more!

I absolutley adore these.

We are working on getting more prints in the shop from Andrew! Thanks for the shout out! ~From the folks at Charmingwall~

Interesting work! It does seem a little cold and “computery”. Do people actually work with paint anymore or just photoshop and Illustrator?You guys have really focused on computer Illustrators lately did anyone notice that his work looks like Adrian Johnson’s work?

Nice stuff, I agree, we need more

On a recent United Airlines flight, I noticed Andrew’s cover for Hemispheres magazine poking-out between SkyMall and the safety instruction card. It wasn’t until this post that I’ve had time to explore his other work. Thanks for the post!

The jump to comparing Andrew’s work to Adrian Johnson’s appears too great to achieve. While both utilize flat color and shape to depict space, Adrian’s work is more editorial & witty (see “Gulf Sale” and “..slap your friends” posters). Andrew’s work is nicely executed, but it should be compared to other illustrators that use flat graphics with textures (perhaps Rad Mountain or Little Friends of Printmaking).

The first comparison that came to mind when seeing the images above was actually Andy Warhol’s shoe illustrations. Now those were some fine shoes!
