Rising Stars: Meet Andrew Pahmiyer

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Pahmiyer.

Hi Andrew, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I am an illustration student at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I have been drawing seriously since about two years ago.

After I started noticing the talent I have, I decided to take it seriously and pursue drawing as a career. As of right now, I’m studying and doing commission work on the side when I have the time.

I’ve done many drawings for people in the best and have worked on big mural projects in my hometown, Waco Texas.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Being an illustrator is definitely not a smooth road. Staying consistent and inspired can be tough at times and can give a feeling of being burnt out at times.

The key to not letting that stop me is giving myself some time to relax and to do drawings I know are easy for me until I can accept the next challenge.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am an Illustrator, and I love to do portraits of people mostly. I would say I’m known for getting a pretty good likeness of the people I draw and I have a decent knowledge of the human anatomy when drawing.

I’m definitely most proud of the full-body drawings I’ve done in which the paper was larger in size because drawing on a larger scale isn’t easy.

What sets me apart from others would definitely be my style when I draw can be geometric and I find interesting shapes in the fact that a lot of people don’t often catch.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
Savannah is a beautiful place with a lot of different characters walking about.

There’s a lot to look at for inspiration whether it’s street art or just the life around savannah in general. There’s not too much to dislike about Savannah honestly.

Parking can be annoying downtown at times; getting a bike becomes more appealing each day.


  • For smaller-scale work (18”x24” or smaller) I charge $50 an hour.
  • Anything bigger than 18”x24” would require price discussion due to the special request.
