In 2001, while working as the assistant to the magazine's cartoon editor, Andy began submitting single panel gag cartoons to The New Yorker.  He signed his work with the pseudonym Larry Hat.  In 2007, Andy took a hiatus from cartooning in order to focus on his music.  He made a brief return to the forum in 2012 — this time with a style that reflected his illustrative work and a signature that bared his own name — but recovering from a repetitive-stress injury to his drawing hand forced him into another break from cartooning.
