Andrew Zbihlyj (most easily pronounced “zi – BEE – lee”) is an award-winning illustrator who has gained international attention and clientele since beginning his career in 2001. Educated and based originally in Toronto, Canada, he has spent the last six years continuing his work from abroad, first in Berlin, then London and more recently in Warsaw & Gdansk. Now based permanently in London, he balances his commissioned work with his personal work, travel and a deep interest in European history. His work can be described as a mildly convoluted mix of traditional & digital collage techniques incorporating loose inks, tight pencils, found photography, acrylic paints, various papers, tapes, chemicals and occasionally a bit of fire.
Andrew's clients include: The New Yorker, Harper’s, Spin, Vibe, Wired, Esquire, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Adbusters, Harrods Times, Intelligent Life, Mercedes Benz, The New Republic, Men’s Health, GQ Korea, Maxim, Rides, UTNE Reader, Reader’s Digest, Variety, Mother Jones and Popular Mechanics. His work has appeared in advertising campaigns for Nissan, Pepsi-Cola & Super Bowl XL, Random House UK, ComData, Adidas All Blacks, Universal Records, Geffen Records (album art for Rise Against) and The 2008 JVC Jazz Festival.
He has also been consistently honored by Communication Arts, American Illustration, The Society of Publication Designers, The Society of Illustrators, 3x3 Magazine, Applied Arts, The Advertising & Design Club of Canada and the National Magazine Awards of Canada.
