They’re eerie and gorgeous, just in time for Halloween.

His work has been screened on every continent except Australia. You’ll weep, you’ll laugh, and you’ll knit your eyebrows in ecstatic confusion.

Andy J. Miller successfully meshes with the likes of Starburst, Sony and the Science Council without seeming to conform to corporate styles. With a splash of handdrawn and wonderful silkscreened colors, Miller adds a bit of whimsy with each of his designs.
