Born in a cave and raised by meerkats, Andy started drawing at a very early age. After years of doodling on the walls of their cave, his parents (now quite old in meerkat years) sent him off to school with his own kind in the hope that he would stop messing around with his pencil and become a doctor or something.
Sadly his parents hopes were dashed and career in the arts beckoned.
In 2002 Andy's talent secured him a place on StripSearch, a UK-based program designed to find and nurture young comic book illustrating talent. During this course he was mentored by comic book talents such as, John McCrea, Hunt Emerson and Jimmy Broxton. It's with Jimmy that Andy went on to create and run The British International Comic Show - which was the largest UK Comic Convention at the time attracting over 3000 visitors!
All the while Andy has been active in all area's of the creative sector. His talents have been used by the likes of IBM, Sky, Disney UK, and MANY more. He's Caricatured his way through Bars, Clubs, Weddings and Bar-Mitzvah's. he draws comics and storyboards, designs zany characters and teaches kids, big and small, how to draw!
He also likes to talk about himself in the third person and makes a mean carrot cake.
