About Andi Astra, Illustrator and Founder & Creative Director at Spooky Girl
Artist and illustrator Andi Astra is the founder and creative director at Spooky Girl. Spooky Girl is colorful home decor, art, and apparel for everyday use, celebrating creative self expression, questioning of the status quo, and creating the place you belong — Spooky Girl encourages people to connect with their highest selves and inspire their inner child through art and color. A queer, multidisciplinary artist based out of Honolulu, Hawaii, Andi began creating science fiction and alien centric art under the name SpookyGirl in 2015, using these themes to explore their own identity and relationship with femininity. SpookyGirl was born from the feeling of perpetual otherness, a theme Andi continues to explore throughout their work. Through the creation of SpookyGirl, Andi has found a like minded community of people who exist outside the traditional expectations of society. Fortunate enough to have a traditional art education, Andi hopes to share all they have learned with artists in their own community who are struggling to find their footing in the professional world.
