After three years studying illustration at Art College, Andy suddenly found himself working in the computer games industry; at a time when computers and consoles were little more than dancing calculators! In 2003, after fifteen years as a games artist, he went back to his illustrative roots and tried his hand at becoming a children's book illustrator. Luckily his hand seemed pretty good at it, and since then he has worked in the fields of picture books, ELT, advertising, television, and character design. His long list of clients includes Usborne Publishing, Franklin Watts, OUP, Scholastic, Hachette, MacMillan, Dreamworks, Ferrero-Kinder, Nestle, Hit Entertainment, and Hasbro. He has also been nominated twice in the prestigious Language Learner Literature Awards. Andy likes doing pictures that are bright, colourful, and imaginative. Oh, and Monsters...he likes doing Monsters! He currently lives in the town of Oban, on the West coast of Scotland, with his wife and three "test subjects" (little kids).
