Dream to Work With
"Andrea was a dream to work with. She did several illustrations for the bookstore; in every instance she delivered on time—or early!—was responsive to feedback and change requests, and, of course, produced amazing work. I would enthusiastically and highly recommend her to anyone, and hope to work with her more in the future.”
“Gorgeously macabre anatomical illustrations by Andrea Sparacio from the new book The Zombie Autopsies. Better know the inner workings of the undead!”
Approachable & Humorous
"When Andrea came to speak to my Explorations in the Arts class at Hunter College about her life and work as an artist, she used creative, interactive technology to show the students the various types of work she is able to do in her profession. It was inspirational for these young people thinking about entering the workforce to become potential artists, illustrators, and graphic designers. She was approachable, humorous, and accessible-- so much so that students stayed later after class just to get the chance to ask her more questions and gain more information. The students really felt like they gained valuable information about what life as a working illustrator was like in the real world from Andrea.”
Outstanding Artistic Collaborator
"Andrea's exquisite attention to detail coupled with her unparalleled ability to put into drawings what I saw in my own mind's eye made her an outstanding artistic collaborator and a potent creative force. Without her careful work, I wouldn't have had a novel. It's that simple."
“Andrea is a rare find – a collaborative, friendly and professional illustrator who puts everything into her beautiful work. Her art speaks for itself – it’s unique and evocative, highly stylized yet adaptable to the specific needs of the project. Her work ethic is exemplary, and she has consistently over-delivered.”
“Andrea’s work is elegant chaos. It’s raw and human, yet very clearly sophisticated. It’s an extremely difficult balance to strike, but she seems to do it with ease.”
