Feature Friday #13 - Andy W. Clift


What got you into art?
Batman the Animated Series. Cartoons were my gateway into art, but it was Batman TAS that tipped it over the edge from hobby to love.

Who is your favourite character to draw?
Batman, again. I’ve been drawing him longer than I can remember. The design just sort of slips out when I’m doodling.


What do you hate drawing?
CARS! I’ve gotten a lot better over the last couple of years, but I still hate drawing them.


Favourite artists?
Darywn Cooke, Bruce Timm, Jack Kirby, Alex Toth, Gil Kane, Mike Oeming, I could go on and on, but those guys have shaped my life.

What mediums do you use?
Mainly digital at the moment, but I love me blue line pencils and an awesome black brush pen.

When you're drawing,  what do you put on in the background?
Usually a movie score, Hans Zimmer mostly. I used to have old Game of Thrones episodes on or cartoons, but I found movie scores work better.

What's your greatest achievement?
Marvel cover credit, for Punisher #19 last year, no doubt.
Although putting out my own written/drawn creator owned book cames a very close second.

What would you say to any aspiring artists
Just keeping drawing, all the time. Research your favourite artists and find their favourite artists. See whats what.

Do you have any projects lined up?
I’m working on a few pages for Joe Glass’s wonderful book, The Pride, very excited about that. And I have a continuing web comic with Mike Garley & Mike Stock called Sgt Steel: Allied Avenger (link above).

Marvel or DC? 
Both

Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate

Captain America or Iron Man?
Spider-Man!

Finally if you could take any character and draw them in a new comic ,  who would it be and who would you choose to write it? 
I would LOVE to draw a Captain Scarlet book, I’d all over that. I’d probably get Mike Garley, to write it. Mainly because we’ve spoken a few times, about how we’d both love to do a Captain Scarlet book one day.
