Andy J. Pizza is an illustrator.

Sometimes he uses pictures. Like in his kid’s books, comics and client work for the likes of The New York Times, Apple or Nickelodeon.

Sometimes he uses words. Like when he’s making his podcast Creative Pep Talk. CPT consists of monologues on building a thriving creative practice and conversations with creative powerhouses like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Abbi Jacobson and Morgan Harper Nichols.

His favorite way to illustrate ideas is with analogies and stories on stage. Andy’s style of public speaking is one part TED Talk, one part one man show — with a sprinkle of stand up comedy. His friends call this new art form Laydown Tragedy ( ) – because it’s the opposite of stand up comedy, in that instead of shooting for laughs, they aim for tears! Andy J. Pizza is a Storyteller!
