He could easily be known as the “cod father” for his elevation of the ubiquitous and historically maligned codfish to an unimagined artistic level. Andrew began his career In New York City as a graphic designer, working primarily in the publishing industry (his covers have an international recognition with Danielle Steel, Carl Hiassen, and John Gray, just to name a few). After moving to Cape Cod, he continued designing book jackets but moved into branding, corporate and personal logo and web design, but in December 2007 he began his foray into cod designs with his first, “The Christmas Cod.”
He was taken with the dropped “r’s” that peppered the speech of locals, and he also loved the look of the codfish, so together he developed Cape Card®, the “Hallmark of Cods.”
His “cods” are visible throughout the Cape and have been sold throughout the world as cards, prints, posters, apparel and signage (Marstons Mills Public Library’s sign is the “Library Cod”). He has had one man shows at The Centerville Historical Society and Falmouth Academy as well as having pieces in group shows at Cotuit Center for the Arts and The Cultural Center of Cape Cod. They are fun, whimsical, personal, and always beautifully executed.
