Personal life

McAndrew was born in 1985 and brought up in Syracuse, NY, but currently lives in San Diego, CA. He was awarded Daemen College's portfolio-based four-year visual art scholarship, where he went on to earn a BFA in Illustration.[2] McAndrew played drums in Syracuse, NY based rock bands Deer Park Elementary and Bleeding Hands along with one of his two brothers, Tyler McAndrew. He is a founding member of Found Hat Press collective.


Phil McAndrew is a prolific writer and illustrator of comic books, which he often self-publishes as hand produced mini-comics. 'Are You Man Enough?', drawn in 2008, is widely regarded as his best work. Other books include The Secret Thoughts of Harold Lawrence Windcrampe, Pearly Whites and Book Comic.

John Martz, the co-founder of the popular illustration blog, says of McAndrew, 'Phil’s non sequitur sense of humour and inky illustration style are like some unlikely combination of B. Kliban and Ronald Searle, two of my heroes.' [3]

As well as self-publishing his own comic books McAndrew has contributed comics to publications, anthology books and websites, including MAD (magazine), Top Shelf 2.0, Serializer, and all three volumes of You Ain't No Dancer from New Reliable Press.

In May 2011 McAndrew created a Kickstarter project with the aim of creating approximately 100 pages of new material. This material will be combined with existing work and published in 2011 by Grimalkin Press. The target of $4000 was exceeded before the one month deadline and the project is underway.
