My Story

I am an Illustrator and Concept artist.  I have worked  in Feature Film, TV,  and Games.  Most notably, my art treatment has helped define the look of Lucas Animation's Star Wars Detours and LucasArts game Lucidity

In the fourth grade my teacher read us Roald Dahl every afternoon, and our homework assignments were to make picture books. That was when I decided to be an Illustrator and storyteller.  

I earned my BFA in Illustration at San Jose State University, and received scholarship awards from the Society of Illustrators.

I grew up longing to be part of the magic of storytelling in its many forms.  Andrea Ruiz Studio is a way for me to share my artwork, and tell those stories. I hope you enjoy! 


Warm Regards,
