I'm a cartoonist living in Minneapolis. Co-Author and artist of A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns. Author of Grease Bats, coming out Fall 2019 with Boom! Studios! If I'm not working I'm socializing. If I'm not out with friends I'm drawing. If I'm not doing any of those things I'm probably depressed. Support me using Patreon.

  1. I am Andy. Andy is me. We are the same. I should take this as a sign that I should probably go apply for some more jobs.

  2. I love all your comics, but this one is my favorite so far. Also, I also want this shirt!!

  3. Oh, Andy!
    If I had a dollar for everyone who’s been judgey about me taking a corporate job to survive then I wouldn’t have needed to take the stupid corporate job in the first place.

    • Honestly a corporate job would be some nice stability for Andy.

      (Also You should never get judged for your work! do what u gotta do!)

  4. My mum recently commended me on choosing a profession with a uniform because I don’t have to play the ‘is this appropriate for work’ game every morning. I didn’t tell her that was one of the influencing factors of choosing my career path…

    • I work as a server twice a week and our uniform is a white button-up, and like, they couldn’t pick a worst uniform for a job with coffee and ketchup and sauces etc . It’s a mess

      • That sounds so poorly planned.

        Also thank you for the story, when I read this the other morning I was super nervous and zoned out and jsut worrying, and thid really helped distract me and focus on just one thing.

  5. My favorite weekend treat! You are the bestest.

    I love: ‘Thank you for helping me take care of myself’
    We all need friends like that these days.

    • The only way I survive in this world is with friends constantly and gently nudging me into the right direction

  6. Oh my goodness, this is so cute. What a great friend! I need someone like her haha.

  7. As someone who’s going to graduate in July its only just hit me how long the job application process is. I’m quite horrified by how unmotivated I am.
