Andy Knapik, 
Creative Thinker, Portrait Artist and Photographer

I am an award-winning photographer and digital artist who first discovered photography after borrowing my college roommate’s camera while attending the University of Arizona and after that I absolutely fell in love with taking pictures and more specifically taking pictures of people.

At that point I changed my major to fine arts, and my love for photography grew into a love for art. Over the years I have learned to combine the styles of painting and photography in order to create one-of-a-kind portraits that are unique and away from the ordinary.

I first discovered cosplayers while watching a news feature on San Diego Comic Con. While I watched, I was completely astonished by the quality of the costumes on display and thought how amazing it would be to create some character art based on them.

I have since worked with many cosplayers from all over the country, whether in my studio, or in various Comic Cons to help create some cool, collaborative works of art that make the cosplayers the subject of their own fan art!

 

I currently live in Tucson, Arizona with my wife Brenda, daughter Hayley and dogs Rosie and Boots, where I probably eat too much pizza but drink just enough beer.
