Through the Lens of an Inky Mess

BY ANDY LEE
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 17, 2017

Andy Lee’s life is intertwined with the use of sumi ink.  Initially, it was used as a tool for revolt, then as a metacognitive exercise, then as a tool to judge how well he knows someone, but mostly the ink and brush served as a conduit for imagination.
A former illustrator for Image, Marvel and D.C. Comics, DragonballZ magazine, Neopets, and Nike among others, Andy now teaches full time at Kaiser high school and the Honolulu Museum of Art School.
The presentation will reveal Andy’s origins and specify some revelatory experiences while painting.
