- What is your name / organization / title?
Andrew Heath Design + Illustration
- What motivated you to become a maker?
My love of art and pop culture from a young and and wanting to make fun things for a living!
- Looking back on the early stages of your journey, what advice would you give yourself now?
What you do is ultimately fun, so don't get too caught up on all of the stressful things.
- What is your favorite thing you’ve ever made? Why?
My card game, Burger Battle. What I mainly focus on is pop culture, so it was fun to create something original from the ground up.
- What’s the next evolution for you (or your industry) going to look like?
With everything that's going on in the world, I have no idea! Hopefully I can keep doing what I'm doing and have fun along the way.
- Who would you partner with (living or dead) for your dream collaboration? And what would you work on together?
I don't think there's any particular person that I would want to work with, but do licensed properties count? If that's the case, I would always love to do more work with Ghostbusters (It's already happened once).
- You're on death row and it's time for your final meal. What'll ya have?
That's an easy one! Steak N Shake - Frisco Melt - Fries - Cup of Chili.
- In a world where you have two hands, all of your pets and loved ones are safe, and your studio is on fire, what do you try to save?
My external hard drive and my Proton Pack.
- What is one piece of pop culture (movie, tv, artwork, song, etc.) that no matter how many times you return to it you still draw excitement, movement, or inspiration?
Ghostbusters. I'm starting to develop a pattern here...
- I love useless facts. Impress me with a seriously useless fact!
In Ghostbusters, in the ballroom scene in the Sedgewick Hotel, when Slimer is floating around the chandelier... That's actually just a peanut painted green.
- If you could try any profession other than your own, what would you choose to do?
I would probably be a musician. When I was in High School, that's what I was mainly interested in.
- What is your personal strategy/philosophy when it comes to using social media for your work?
Keep it interesting and try your best to post different things.
- Speaking of social media, where can people find you?
