About Andy

I’m an illustrator in Newburyport, MA. I have eleven published books with more titles due out soon. Before children's books, I worked as an animator and character designer and also taught high school and college art. Right now, I'm busy working on a handful of picture books and other illustration projects. Check me out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/AJ-Smith/99131516002?ref=ts... More

Hey Andy,

Thank you for the notice of your book reading in Salem. I am working a craft fair that day, or I definately would have come by. Best of luck.

Love your site. Lots of fun things to look at. And I enjoyed the pink & gray hiking boots with the physical map outlines in the background. Nice touch!

Hi Andy.... Love your work! ... thanks for the comment. So you're a fan of the Adirondacks? I had lots of fun in Lake George, Saratoga, growing up in Corinth.
Comment by Kirsten Cappy on 4/15/2008 at 10:19 AM:
Well, drat. I hear I missed you at Scibby (otherwise know as the unpronounceable SCBWI). Next time, kind sir...
Comment by Lisa Griffin on 4/15/2008 at 8:04 AM:
Are you from Maine originally? I ask because that is where I grew up and Moose are one of my favorite animals... they are just so goofy looking that you have to love them. Thanks for sending along links to your other illustrations. Had fun looking at them and the blue lobster, very rare! Even more r... more
Comment by Lisa Griffin on 4/11/2008 at 6:21 PM:
I am in love with your little brown bear smeared in blueberries.. maybe it is because I am originally from Maine and would go blueberry picking every summer... or maybe its because I just love bears, but I think it also is because of your illustrative style. ;)
Thanks for sharing,
Comment by Eric Vanucci on 4/7/2008 at 10:19 AM:
The animation is fantastic! Love the song, the baby, the colors... And Teddy Rocks!
Comment by Steven Novak on 3/5/2008 at 4:23 PM:
Hey Andy, love your work. Have for a while actually. I've been to your blog more than a couple times in the past, though my inherent laziness prohibited me from leaving a comment. Darn that laziness.

I'm glad that article was so helpful! I got lots of nice comments about it after it appeared in the SCBWI Bulletin--some from as far away as Australia .
