I just have this wild, crazy, and idealistic idea that I persist in believing: I can express my opinions on controversial topics in a meaningful way, disagree with people politely (sometimes with a touch of sarcasm), refuse to hate anyone no matter how much I would like to, and all the while fight to maintain a positive attitude, while accepting that sometimes I may fail miserably at any of the above.

Andrew David Cox
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Born in Winston-Salem, NC in 1992, Andrew David Cox is a cartoonist, painter, and illustrator pursuing a full-time career in editorial cartooning and other visual arts opportunities. In May 2014, Cox graduated from Appalachian State University cum laude and with departmental honors. While in college he served as an editorial cartoonist for the student newspaper, The Appalachian, from August 2012 until May 2014. Cox's cartoons address important issues playfully and wittily while also recognizing somber and more serious moments. His work as a cartoonist or freelance illustrator has appeared in multiple publications, including the Winston-Salem Journal, the High Country Press, and select blog posts on the website Daily Kos.

In December of 2013, Andrew was contacted through the AAEC to present about his student editorial cartooning work at Northeast Lakeview College in Universal City, Texas. He traveled to Texas in March of 2014 and participated in the panel on editorial cartooning, Cartooning Texas, as the keynote speaker. The school also hosted an exhibition of his work in their performing arts center. Andrew plans to continue membership with the AAEC, hoping to change his membership to professional.

Andrew had his first solo exhibition, featuring his editorial cartoons, in the Looking Glass Gallery at Appalachian State University during the fall of 2013. Apart from his cartooning, Cox also paints, blurring the line between the two mediums. His paintings are political and express opinions on current events but are not as specific to particular issues as his cartoons are, addressing more universal topics in the paintings. He maintains the practices of both cartooning and painting in the belief that the combination betters his art overall. In late April to early May of 2014, the Looking Glass Gallery featured Cox’s solo BFA senior studio exhibition, comprised of six large-scale acrylic political paintings, nine hand-drawn and digitally colored editorial cartoons, and an eighty page self-published book on the relationship between editorial cartooning and political painting
