Andi Santagata is a cartoonist living in White River Junction, Vermont, currently attending the Center for Cartoon Studies. They make their own comics and handmade books, usually about identity, teenagers, and romanticizing the idea of teenage loneliness. They're probably most known for their autobio comic, Trans Man Walking, and putting out work through their lil' zine imprint, Sorry Mom Comix.

Andi usually uses a dip pen & ink, and their favorite nib is the Hunt #56. When they're not talking about themselves in the third person and obsessing over inking, Andi reads up on the occult and pets cats. Well, mostly pets cats.

 

I'm available for comics, illustration, inking, and other similar work! at: SuitedDevil@gmail.com

Press for Things I've Done

"Pretty stylin'... [...] The loose, flowing art is sometimes uneven, but appealingly distinctive [...] ...a promisingly goofy action-comedy."  - Shaenon Garrity at The Comics Journal on "American Spirits: Freelance Ghostbusters"

"A quirky, good-looking nerd-a-thon of a comic"  - Al Rosenberg at Women Write About Comics on "American Spirits: Freelance Ghostbusters"
