Working under the name Imakethings, Andrew Groves is a freelance illustrator. He says: “I have a particular interest in the natural world, and aim to invent characters that explore the grotesque beauty of its many beasts and creatures, and the folklore that surrounds them.”

Andrew is currently based in the UK creating work for clients such as Foundation Skateboards, Snowboarder Magazine, Orange and Panasonic to name but a few. He is also constantly involved in self-initiated projects and schemes as well as creating work for exhibitions and shows worldwide.
