RIP Andy Johnson, AKA Andy Dog, brother of The The’s Matt Johnson. His illustrations graced many covers of many The The / Some Bizzare albums and singles throughout the 1980s and 90s. Biting and humorous in equal measures, and clearly ahead of his time in that it foresaw the subversive cartoon trend, his work inspired and informed my own drawings, an influence I believe remains to this day. A very, very sad loss of a great artist who deserved much wider acknowledgment in his own right.
For those of you on FB, there’s a poignant remembrance on The The’s page.
