Andrew Brandou's work reminds of illustrations from the The Little Golden books my Grandparents used to read to me as a kid. Some look as though they came straight form The Little Golden Library itself, which is what initially drew me to his work in the first place...there is a comfort and innocence in them. However some of Andrew's chipper, happy animals have a little twinkle of mischief in their eye or a total insane 1000 yard stare, depending on which piece you are looking at. And that is what kept me with Andrew's work, the reality and honesty brought to the cute little critters he portrays. Remember not all fairy tales were sweet and innocent as Disney sugars them up today. Fecal Face posted an interview with him back in February of 2006. It's an entertaining look into Andrew's proffesional and personal life.
