Andrew Ashbrook is a profoundly mysterious gentleman with a disarming sense of humor. (Alternately: Andrew is a body builder with kung-fu abilities who is ready for the women.) I hardly see him despite the fact that he’s one of my roommates, so I’m always learning something new about the guy.

I knew he was a talented pizza chef, but one evening I came home to find him working on a collage in our living room. He showed me his collection of past works, and it turns out he’s the best collagist you’ve never heard of! He has a massive collection of old comics and magazines that he crafts into psychedelic mind-bending works on paper. He’s a humble guy, but he says his biggest influences are definitely Leonardo DaVinci and Pablo Picasso. You can be the judge of that.
