Profile of Andy Giarnella
Illustrations have always been first and foremost
a communication discipline-a discipline I have practiced with distinction.

As an award winning Art Director for some of the Northeast's best known
consumer and b-b agencies, and later as head of my own firm
I continually explore new ways to use visual media to connect ideas from one mind into another.

Although I have many years of advertising and marketing
experience over the last 15 years I have concentrated my conceptual abilities as an editorial, advertising and book illustrator.

Bearing in mind that the message is everything I create conceptual images that are simple to the point and always clear in their message.
My works cover a broad range of use, sometimes humorous sometimes very serious sometimes macabre. Staying current to Financial, Medical and Social Issues is essential to my work.

You can find original creations of mine at work for businesses all around the world. from brand mascots and cartoon humor to-larger-than life murals to highly-refined conceptual pieces. 

Creating custom artwork that engages, entertains and educates is my specialty. High-resolution digital format images with fast turn-around in doing custom images is the norm for me.              

You can give me your concept(s) to illustrate or just give me your copy to create from.You can also choose from my stock image library for instant illustrations or ask about my Custom Images at Stock House prices.

My mantra: Communication is a must - Creativity is the means
