patrons


My name is Phil McAndrew and I'm an illustrator, cartoonist and writer. I mostly create short comics, many of which were collected in my first book, Crying in Front of Your Dog and Other Stories. I've also illustrated books for children, like the Caveboy Dave series of graphic novels written by Aaron Reynolds and Monster Science by Helaine Becker. I've contributed comics and humor to MAD Magazine, The New YorkerPopula, and The Nib. I've worked on projects for Cartoon Network, Penguin Random House, BOOM! Studios and many others. I've written articles about drawing and creativity, I've given talks and held drawing workshops, and I enjoy making and sharing creative tools online for free, like my Big List of Stuff To Draw.

I'm using patreon to share comics, illustrations, doodles, digital zines, behind the scenes peeks at my process, and all sorts of other projects.

I've tried throughout my career to support other artists whenever I can and I'm extremely grateful for the support that I myself have received. Thank you!!!
