About Me

Just had my painting Thunderbird framed

Hello! My name is Andrew C. Pappas

                I am an illustrator and character designer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who loves mythology and fantasy. I mainly work digitally though my work is heavily inspired by traditional European oil painting, especially the work of the Orientalists, the Dutch Golden Age, and American artists like John Singer Sargent. I am interested in therianthropy, the fusion of man and animal, the Victorian Era, and realistic lighting and rendering. My goal is to use my art to tell mythological stories and make real fantastic beings and beast in new and exciting ways.

               I also do commission portraiture in both a realistic or a cartoony style. I have done paintings of people’s beloved pets, family members, and homes, as well as wedding portraits for newlyweds. See my "Commission Art" page for examples.

                I am always open for new illustration clients and portrait commissions, so please contact me with any work you would like done. See my "Contact" page for more information and don’t forget to subscribe to my monthly newsletter to keep up to date on all my current work and follow me on Instagram and like my Facebook page.
