Journey to the Center of the Earth by Andy Carey

Design By:
Andy Carey

Andy Carey was born in Salem, MA and raised in the Greater Boston area. Andy’s youth was spent in ice rinks, but he managed to discover my passion for making art. In 2001, Andy earned a BFA in graphic design with Honors from Montserrat College of Art. During the following year, Andy began work on the “space-ism” concept which produced the first piece for the Icon Series. The concept focuses on creating planes of space within two dimensional artwork while simplifying the imagery to geometric shapes. Over time, illustrations emerged from these paintings. In addition, Andy produces traditional drawings, mixed media pieces, and works as a graphic designer. Since 2003, Andy and his wife have been stuck in the terrifying traffic of Southern California.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

The idea was to convey a sense of adventure by showing the moment when an ichthyosaur battles a plesiosaur and have the creatures fight around a cutout which exposes the book’s title. This cutout would represent the opening that leads to the earth’s interior. I extrapolated on the idea by including more visuals inside circular frames. — Andy Carey
