About Me...

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 books and I haven't looked back since.

In 2001 I created the breakout 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 Howard E. Day Memorial Prize, the Harvey Award, two Ignatz Awards, and the 2006 Eisner Award for "Best Publication for a Younger Audience."

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 on my Owly comics, books, and graphic novels. :)

Frequently Asked Questions:
I may not be able to answer all of your questions because I'm busy working on more Owly stories. But I've set up a little Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q) page that may help you out if you've got a question about me or Owly.

You can also ask me your questions in person! I travel to lots of comic book conventions, libraries, and special events during the year and I list my schedule on my home page on the right hand side.
