Artist Bio – 2015: Andre Campbell

Andre Campbell is a writer and blogger who has Cerebral Palsy. This doesn’t define Andre, but will allow you to appreciate his incredible accomplishment in creating this graphic novel.
He graduated from high school in 2010, and presently lives on his own in Cambridge, Ontario. Like many young people, Andre didn’t love his high school experience. In many ways, he was a normal, angst-y teenager, but if you asked him, he would say that he was made to feel pretty different.
Campbell’s peers used his disability and sexual orientation to bully him. Adding issues related to his Cerebral Palsy to this constant insensitivity it became almost too much to handle. But Andre soldiered through.
After finishing high school, things got better for Andre. Nothing changed overnight, but things did change, and they continue to improve. Good changes are possible for anyone, no matter who they are!
