Andrew George Brown
1950-1982

These amazing fanciful illustrations were created by my father, the late Andrew George Brown. These highly detailed free hand mechanical drawings were done using the old quill pen dipped in ink and colored with felt markers. I am so proud that after 30 years; these excitingly inventive creations are now available in fine art quality reproduction prints.

Andrew George Brown was born in Ottawa Ontario Canada. His passion from a very young age was to draw. Andy lived in many areas across Saskatchewan growing up and later into Alberta.

Andrew George Brown was born in Ottawa Ontario Canada. His passion from a very young age was to draw. Andy lived in many areas across Saskatchewan growing up and later into Alberta. Andy’s first big fine art commission job was for Kip Scott Pontiac GMC in Red Deer Alberta. He created the Scotty mascot that became a land mark in the area for decades as it was a giant hand painted wooden sign of Scotty. After attending a year studying at The Alberta College of Art in 1968 he moved to New West Minster, BC where he pursued another driving passion. Andy was a passionate long distance and competitive Cyclist. He started working for Cap’s Bicycle Shop, which is still in business today. Andy with his mechanical talents and love of cycling repaired and built high end racing bikes while joining cycling teams and competing throughout the British Columbia area. Andy created numerous drawings during this time mostly all pen and ink illustrations. He was mostly known for his drawings of large and small fishing boats on dry dock’s; either resting up, broken upon rocks or snuggled up tight in the bay of different harbors around the BC coast. He was also known for his drawings of farm scenes with old rickety barns and vintage cars and tractors peaking through over grown grass and brush. In these years Andy met his mentor and great friend, the famous political, golf cartoon, and stamptoon artist Lo Linkert who also purchased some of Andy’s original pieces. Lo Linkert was instrumental in Andy’s artistic achievements. He assisted Andy in getting a job with the greeting card company, Carlton Cards in 1975. This gave Andy the ability to work and go back to his studies at the Art College in 1976. Thank you, Ginger Blakley.
