Andrea Lynn Lanteigne
Welcome to Andrea's Art Land! Welcome to my magical world of wonder and beauty. I am an author and illustrator. I have a vivid memory of using a pencil to draw a tiny bird on the wall when I was 3 years old. My passion is for story whether that be in storyboards, illustrations, writing, characters, comics, or 3D. I cannot write or draw without a story. When I wrote Faeryland: The Defeat of the Troll King, I finished writing the story first before I started on the illustrations. I made the sketches while I was writing. If the pictures did not fit the story, they were removed. Faeryland: The Defeat of the Troll King is now available for pre-order.
I am graduating from IUPUI in May 2021 with my English degree concentrating in Creative Writing at the Indiana University School of Liberal Arts. I briefly double majored in Computer Graphics concentrating in 3D Animation and Spacial Graphics at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology.
I studied at The Oatley Academy of Visual Storytelling in the Magic Box course and did some other self-studies through Udemy, Creativebug, Shaw Academy, and various other art courses including some on Youtube. You can find my resume under About Me > Resume along with my relevant coursework.
I currently work at a bank as a banker and a teller. The service industry was not an ideal fit for me when I needed a job, but they were the only jobs offered to me during the recession. I could not complete any kind of internship because they either didn't pay enough (generally for free) or there weren't enough hours (I couldn't find a full time job until I was 26). I needed to work throughout my twenties because I had to support myself. I am and will always be searching for a career change to create art through story (storyboarding, characters, backgrounds, etc.). Subsequently, this was my motivation behind Faeryland: The Defeat of the Troll King as well as this website. When I finish college in May 2021, I am planning to move near Los Angeles, California to find work in the animation industry. I hope you enjoy my site and my endless art.
