Hey there! :) My name is Andy. I've always loved to draw and always loved comics. After college and a career in corporate America, I finally followed my heart, started drawing comics, graphic novels, and children's books and I haven't looked back since.

In 2001 I created the all-ages series of graphic novels, Owly, which features a kind-hearted little owl who's always searching for new friends and adventure. The Owly series has earned praise from fans and critics alike, winning multiple awards including the Harvey Award, two Ignatz Awards, the 2006 Eisner Award for "Best Publication for a Younger Audience," and many others.

I rely on a mixture of symbols, icons, and expressions to tell my silent stories, and my work showcases my love of wildlife and the outdoors. I currently reside in the greater-Atlanta area where I work full-time as a cartoonist! :)
