Andy Singleton

After seeing a post on Design*Sponge about Andy Singleton I had to check out his website to see his other work and share it with you. Andy graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2006 and defines himself as an Artist/Illustrator.
His paper- cuttings and hand drawn illustrations are an exploration of the natural and man-made world......I love the contrasting black and white tones and how it draws you into the lines and shapes created. To follow what Andy is up to you can visit his blog here at
