Andy Fackrell is one of the most awarded and recognised multi-dimensional creatives in the world. A career in advertising earned him the highest honours, including the Cannes Grand Prix in film for his work for Nike. A true creative nomad, living and working in all continents — Antarctica excepted — he is now a film maker exploring documentaries on social and environmental issues.
Group Hug! was inspired by his safari across the Serengeti, and, on a separate journey, a short film he created in South Africa to aid in the fight against animal poaching. He writes for film, paints for himself, and occasionally illustrates other authors’ work that touch on important issues.
Andy lives by the beach in Sydney. Group Hug! is his first book.
