• Hi there, I’m Andy

    Well, to be honest, it’s my pen name. I tell stories in the form of comics. I try to pin down what we all feel but never quite grasp – to aquire small keys to the art of living.

  • I’m an indie comics creator

    It makes me free. No limits. No rigid impersonal publisher – so I can be authentic.

  • We publish our comics digitally

    They can be read on iPhones & iPads in our app – so that you can touch and be touched, by an original experience.

  • Our app is called Pencil United

    We buy 3 UNICEF pencils, for each and every purchased story – to support school kids to learn for life.

  • The app is iOS exclusive

    We put user experience and quality first. Just like Apple. It works on all iPhone 6/6Plus and later models as well as all iPads with a Retina display.

Pencil Donation Initiative

We help kids to learn for life - because for each and every story that you purchase in our app, we buy 3 UNICEF school pencils to support learning and creativity - This is really important to us.

    “I clearly remember the anticipation on my first day of school when my teacher handed out shiny new yellow pencils. The pencil I got felt like a gift. It became a symbol that meant learning and new possibilities.”

    “I know that children in the whole world who start school feel the same joy. But the truth is that 61 million school-aged children did not go to school in 2011. And a majority of those, 53%, were girls.”

    “For each and every story that gets purchased in my app, I have decided that I will buy three pencils through UNICEF, who will then distribute them to schools throughout the world, that they support.”

    “When you read my digital comics, and I buy pencils, together we will give more children the opportunity to write, create and learn for life. What could be more important than that?!”
