Based in the United States, Andy Singer has drawn cartoons and illustrations for over twenty-five years. His work appears mostly in the alternative press but occasionally in more mainstream venues. He has published cartoons in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Discover Magazine, The Saint Paul Pioneer Press, Adbusters, New Internationalist, Z Magazine, The Progressive, Wired.com, NPR.com, NBCnews.com, and many other newspapers and websites. He is the author of four books and has contributed cartoons to hundreds of others. His first book, CARtoons (2001) has been translated into five languages. Over the years, the internet has driven many newspapers and magazines out of business, greatly reducing the market for cartoons. Today, Andy’s work appears in La Décroissance (France), Neweekly (China), and a handful of websites and small weekly or monthly papers.
Singer received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award to support the creation of longer multi-page comics, including a four-page comic version of the Woody Gutherie song “Ballad of Pretty Boy Floyd” and a multi-page comic using road-sign icons.
