andreawicklund's Profile Picture
Andrea Wicklund
Artist | Professional | Design & Interfaces
United States
Andrea Wicklund was raised in the remotest corner of Wisconsin, in a house on a hill among cornfields, by a schoolteacher mother and an engineer father who at one time led a company that makes recycling trucks. Before she reached her teens, she was splitting logs at the family woodcutting camp and operating the riveting machine in their basement workshop. Fortunately, neither of these activities cost her any fingers, and she was also able to begin drawing at the side of her uncle, a wildlife painter. Andrea momentarily pursued a career in law before rejecting that path as inadequately sleep-depriving. She chose art instead.

Armed with a degree in illustration from San Francisco's Academy of Art College, she duped a confused receptionist into letting her into an art director's office. Two months later, her first illustration appeared in Spin magazine. Andrea's work has since appeared in Rolling Stone, Vibe, the Society of Illustrators Annual, etc. She has twice attended the Illustration Academy, and has been invited to lecture there and at Academy of Art College. Current projects include concept work for the videogame and entertainment industries.

Funny that I should read the Lab Ratt comic, and then find that you are new to DA. Funny how life revolves the way it does. Keep up your good work. Till next -

hey um, i know ur kinda new to DA and i also know that ur judging the 2D art contest thingy, so i was wondering can our art be something abstract? like for example a picture of a brain with crazy colors and designs coming out of it as an interpretation of art or what goes on in the mind of an artist? and when does the contest end? please respond. thanks. :confused:
