Andrew Hoffman is bringin’ da bling

MainImage-Hoffman

Denver-based artist Andrew Hoffman really cuts through the s**t with his board for BBNYC. Setting aside the fine hand-drawn details that are often seen in much of his work, and going straight for the gold leaf, he has presented us with a no-nonsense message. Andrew works prolifically in varied styles and mediums; you can’t throw […] | More…
