I dropped by my buddy Andrew Bell’s studio recently to catch up on things and see what kind of projects he’s been working on. I think it’s safe to say that he was keeping himself quite busy, so busy in fact that I had to break up this visit into multiple posts. We’ll start off with a preview of his upcoming show “The Great Escape” with another amazing artist, Kelly Denato. Once again mixing his intricate illustrations and twisted sense of humor, Andrew tells a story about the tragedies of life and our abilities to rise and remold that pain into new beginnings. If you’re in Albuquerque New Mexico from April 6-29th be sure to go check out all his work at Stranger Factory.
