At school, he used to chew pencils a great deal and it was probably such a diet that lead (uh-oh) to an artistic longing straight from his internals.
Andy Attended the Norwich school of Art and Design where he had nothing to do with illustration. He did learn a great deal about animation, biscuits and why penguins are bad.
Oh, and there’s some career stuff about working on games for Microsoft, Hasbro and others on well known licenses. He also originated and co-wrote an animated feature for BBC1 or something. He has illustrated many many children’s books.
Andy Catling currently works as an illustrator and lives with his lovely wife and two pet children who sometimes sneak into his bedroom and draw on his pants.
