Andrew Foerster is a Toronto-based illustrator and animator. He strives to create interesting projects that challenge his artistic abilities and push his comfort zone. Foerster is always looking for new ways to combine different styles, techniques and media. He is particularly fond of combining music, storytelling, sculpture and video. Driven by his determination to create exciting art for himself and others, he endeavours to inspire people to dream big and follow their hearts.
Created, designed, and animated by Andrew Foerster (Rewfoe), Tin Canyon follows three well-meaning bluegrass musicians who must overcome their debilitating stage fright to unleash their talent on the world. Initially created by Rewfoe as a stage show of visuals, music, and storytelling, Tin Canyon has since been adapted by Together’s Pazit Cahlon into a rhyming ballad, and has been produced by Together and Rewfoe as an animated short. Tin Canyon features the bluegrass-inspired sounds of Juno Award-winning banjoist and composer, Jayme Stone.
