Andy is a wonderfully creative illustrator. He transformed my vague concepts into beautifully detailed and stunning art. It is so rare to find someone who hits the nail on the head every time and Andy has delivered time and time again. Andy always goes out of his way and his work shows how much he cares about his projects. He's a gem! Working with him will never disappoint!

Creative, quick, professional, quirky. Once editorial deadlines’ loom Andy’s ability to interpret a brief and execute a unique editorial image that lifts dull text heavy pages is unequalled. Calm under pressure his insight brings a colourful and witty solution that has made him a mainstay of Daily Mail features for many years.
Craig Gunn, Daily Mail.
Andy has created two wonderful posters for Do The Green Thing. For both, he conceived a really clever and disruptive illustration-based idea, executed each with a wonderfully rich illustration and was very collaborative on both occasions, open to thoughts and suggestions. Both times, working with Andy was a delightful and positive experience and produced an exceptionally strong outcome. I can recommend him wholeheartedly.

Every chance I get to work with Andy Ward I feel like a kid in a candy store! I’m elated. Delighted. I’m filled with glee when I get sketches that are darn near perfection.
Andy is just fun to work with! And I look forward to hiring him again, and again. “

Simply put, it's people like Andy that make working in publishing fun. If you've never commissioned Andy before, give him a go. If you already have, I'm sure you'll agree that his recent AOI Award was thoroughly deserved.
