Biography

Peter Andrews is a self-taught artist and illustrator, working in a variety of digital and traditional media.

Thanks to a lifetime of reading and roleplaying his primary interest is in fantasy, sci-fi and horror character work but (much to his chagrin) he is still probably best at sketching mountains.

He is currently part of the Luna Press Family - an independent publisher based in Edinburgh, Scotland - who publish his little bestiaries of cute Cthulhu monsters.

His art inspirations are Todd Lockwood, Adrian Smith and Wayne Reynolds.
His favourite authors are pulp writers of all stripes - from the cosmic horror of HP Lovecraft to the sword & sorcery of Robert E Howard and the hard-boiled grizzle of Raymond Chandler.

Peter lives in Nottingham, where he works in a local history library ogling old maps and lives next to a graveyard with his partner, a fellow library worker and Viking enthusiast.
