Andrew's Social Media:


Andrew Hussie is revered for his excellent multimedia webcomic. He creates worlds with his mind, and like a chess grandmaster, he knows just how each piece fits in his intricate web. His ability to create, deconstruct, exaggerate, and work with almost a hundred characters puzzles his readers, and they have nothing but deep respect for him. Hussie was born on August 25, 1979, in Massachusetts, and his zodiac sign is Virgo. His father’s name is Andrew F. Hussie, while his mother’s name is unknown. He keeps his personal life very private, and apart from his father, his brother, Byron Hussie, is his only known relative. Hussie also studied at Temple University, Philadelphia.

Hussie is well-known for his work on “MS Paint Adventures,” a webcomics series he creates using Adobe Photoshop. However, the work retained the pixelated appearance often associated with Microsoft Paint. Hussie began working on “Jailbreak,” the first of the series, in 2007, and it was the last time Hussie used Microsoft Paint. Hussie also used suggestions from readers when writing “Jailbreak,” which distorted the storyline and made him abandon it. He launched the second series, “Bard Quest,’ in 2007 but Hussie didn’t complete it like its predecessor. His third series was “Problem Sleuth.” It ran from 2008 to 2009, and it was his first comic series to get a proper conclusion.

His most popular series was the fourth, “Homestuck.” It ran from 2009 to 2016, and it drew millions of readers daily. Hussie also creates video games. In 2013, Namco Bandai contacted him and his company, What Pumpkin Studios, to create a dating game. In the end, he created “Namco High” (2013). Hussie lives on the revenue generated from merch sales and advertising revenue from the Homestuck website.
