One of his paintings is in the collection of the National Gallery in Washington DC. Andy studied with Will Eisner, Jack Kirby and Paul Ryan as he learned the craft of comics and graphic novels.

He is also continuing work on SINISTRE for an independent publisher and is developing his next graphic novel set during the dust bowl called RAIN.
Previously Andy completed the online pulp inspired Batman comic strip THE DEATH RAY OF HUGO STRANGE to much acclaim. 13th Dimension called it "The Best Batman Comic DC Never Published" which is kind of praise for it I guess.
