Overview

Hi Guys!

I’m Andy, an illustrator from Birmingham, England. I’ve been in the “biz” drawing comics, storyboards, designing characters, etc, for nearly 20 years! I’m a big kid at heart so ideally suited to working with those wanting to tell stories for children of all ages.

Although ‘cartoon’ is my default I can adjust my style to fit the project needs. I specialise in caricature and character design, I am also available for any cover or comic work you might need so drop me a line and let’s chat!

-Doodles.

Irene Shere
I was looking for an extremely talented, imaginative, creative illustrator for my humorous book--and I found that in Andy. His drawings were FANTASTIC--beyond my wildest dreams. He was very pleasant to work with--great sense of humor! I couldn't recommend him more highly as an illustrator! He's the best.

Irene Shere
Andy was the best!! Super easy to work with despite the 5 hour time difference...an amazing amazing cartoonist who turned my wordy text into playful, whimsical drawings and cartoons. Andy was the perfect artist to do my interior illustrations!
