Andrew Hussie is a {{webcomic}} artist best known for ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'', who rose to particular fame with his latest project ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. He's only been doing ''MSPA'' for the past six years, though--for several years before then, he tried his hand at a fairly diverse array of webcomic endeavors and wrote a small number of graphic novels (only one was actually published). Other old endeavors of his include ironic reviews of muscular horse pornography (no longer available), and WebVideo/JandrewEdits, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/gazorra a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/user/andrewhussie series]] [[http://www.youtube.com/user/JawsNerdEdit of]] humourous edits of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in collaboration with Jan Van Den Hemel. He was also involved in writing a HighSchoolAU DatingSim for [[Creator/NamcoBandai Namco]] characters. '''''[[http://www.polygon.com/2013/7/19/4537684/homestuck-creator-developing-namco-high-dating-sim Seriously]]'''''.

It's abundantly clear that Hussie is a man who [[GenreSavvy knows his tropes]] really, ''really'' well. Practically everything he does (but especially ''MSPA'') [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]], [[SubvertedTrope subverts]], [[DoubleSubversion double-subverts]], [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]], [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerates]], [[LampshadeHanging hangs lampshades on]], and otherwise works the hell out of the conventions of multiple genres at the same time. Also, if ThisVeryWiki is anything to go by, he's very, ''very'' quotable.

Most of his older work is archived [[https://web.archive.org/web/20131105052409/http://www.andrewhussie.com/comics.php here]]. He maintains [[http://twitter.com/andrewhussie a Twitter account]]. He previously maintained two Formspring accounts and a [[http://mspandrew.tumblr.com/ Tumblr blog]]. The Formspring accounts are [[http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread.php?42662-Formspring-Archives archived here]], and some of the deleted Tumblr posts are archived [[http://mspaintadventureswiki.tumblr.com/tagged/archive here]].

He has huge lips.

!!Tropes related to Hussie himself or his non-''MSPA'' works:
* AIIsACrapshoot: How Data is portrayed in his ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' edits.
** He has a habit of painting random muscle porn, especially if it's horse-related. In the edit "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk7eyqY4bbQ it's not lupus]]", the crew witnesses Data shamelessly painting one of these, declare him irreparable, throw him out the airlock, and blow him up with a proton torpedo.
** In "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7jbP1_H9sA PicArt]]", after looking at Picard's painting of a horse playing a saxophone, Data proceeds to kill everyone on board, throw the painting out of the airlock, and blow it up with a proton torpedo.
* AnimalMotifs: Horses. Something of an odd example, however, as he has claimed that he mostly just finds them to be inherently funny, rather than having an actual affinity for them.
* ArtEvolution: ''Aversion''. Hussie's actual skill level is unknown but is far above the work that he usually does. His writing and skill with Flash however, ''have'' improved.
** The art of ''[[http://www.amazon.com/Starlight-Calliope-Whistles-Book/dp/159362073X Whistles]]'' and ''[[http://www.andrewhussie.com/comic.php?sec=archive&auth=Andrew&cid=aids/00000.jpg And It Don't Stop]]'' really display how far beneath his skill level ''[=MSPA=]'' is.
** One need only look at the cover art for ''Homestuck'''s [[http://mspaintadventures.com/scraps2/HS2cover.jpg second volume]] and compare it to the [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002333 actual panel]] it's a representation of to see an immediate difference.
* BerserkButton: Wireless mice, the only subject where his raging about them on Twitter is not a massive exaggeration PlayedForLaughs.
* BestialityIsDepraved: Of the alien variant between {{Series/Alf}} and Willie Tanner in his ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZERfeh7n4Q Mister Meatloaf]]'' edit.
* BetterThanABareBulb
* BigBrotherIsWatching: A running gag in his ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' edits is that Picard would monitor every event in multiple angles on his screen with a look of satisfaction on his face.
* CreatorThumbprint: Glasses, especially [[CoolShades shades]], all manner of treatments of hiphop/rap and its surrounding culture, clowns, heavy video game influences, and always a dash of CrazyAwesome.
* DadaComics: A very sizable portion of his earlier work is like this, as well as ''SweetBroAndHellaJeff''. Shades of this still crop up in ''MSPA'' every so often.
* DeadpanSnarker: Dear ''God'', he's a veritable master of it.
* DoingItForTheArt
* EmbarrassingTattoo: Of '''''Hella Jeff'''''. We shit you not.
* FamousAncestor: He claims to be a descendent of Doc Holliday (despite Doc Holliday having no recorded offspring), who served as the partial namesake of Doc Scratch of ''Homestuck''.
* GagLips: The subject of ''oh'' so much SelfDeprecation and MemeticMutation.
* GeneralFailure: Picard in the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtmbzJNPsaQ flauting danger]]" edit, who focuses on playing his flute very badly while the Enterprise is being torn apart.
* GenreBusting: Individual genres ([[UpToEleven or mediums, for that matter!]]) mean little to Hussie; most of his work shows something of a genre blend, best exemplified in ''Homestuck''.
* GenreSavvy / DangerouslyGenreSavvy
* KindheartedCatLover: [[http://hussieformspring.tumblr.com/post/25117781930/question-you-have-cats-now-are-they Yep.]] One of them is called Harley "Cherry Hog" Davidson, and the other one is, last we heard of it, called Samantha.
* LargeHam: Online, anyway; he's actually much more subdued and calm in person. [[Characters/HomestuckTrollsTwo Sound familiar?]]
* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: His foray at [[http://mspandrew.tumblr.com/post/12963616983/land-of-souls-and-olives-a-conclusion-pasta-la-vista Olive]] [[http://mspandrew.tumblr.com/post/13585722775/land-of-souls-and-olives-a-conclusion-plmfers-part Garden]]
* OneManArmy: Consider ''Homestuck''[='=]s legendary update rate coupled with the occasional Flash animation/game. Though he's supported by an art team which occasionally contributes assets to said Flash animations and a music team that does all but a small few musical samples, it's still impressive.
** In the hiatus that ran from 19/1/2015 to 4/13/2015 he managed to make a staggering 400 pages.
* ManipulativeEditing: Despite being the writer of the scenarios, his old movie and tv edits have... ''interesting'' stories.
* MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness: Whenever he writes sci-fi stuff, it's always some insane mixture of the two sides. Expect loads of GeniusBonus next to complete nonsense.
* MixAndMatchCritters: The Humanimals. Very much PlayedForLaughs.
* MundaneUtility: A recurring gag in ''Humanimals'', where any given character's unique physiology is utilised to, say, refill the printer at the office.
* MythologyGag: At this point, a sizable sample of his older work has been referenced in ''Homestuck''. Yes, even the horse porn reviews (hint: pay attention to Equius's taste in art).
* [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom Naked Q In The Living Room]]: In his ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0XdRxSHVKg The NaQed Now]]'' edit.
* NiceGuy: When he's not teasing his fans, he's generally considered to be polite.
* ScrewYourself: Done to William T. Riker and his clone in his ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck-VIA1GUCY beard on beard]]'' edit.
* SeenItAll: The premise of his ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGvYIZppmQc Uneventful Day]]'' edit of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''.
* SelfDeprecation: Surprisingly frequent on his part, both in his work and otherwise. It provides an interesting contrast to how he's much more well known for [[SmallNameBigEgo going the other way]].
* SmallNameBigEgo: Jokingly portrays himself as this often.
* StylisticSuck: A specialty of his, usually explored through art but occasionally through writing. He has said that his goal is to replicate the UncannyValley which the works of inexperienced artists who are just on the very edge of actually being good naturally occupy.
** The ''Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff'' book takes this to an art form. The fancy, gold foil stamped hardcover has a random patch of glossy finish resembling a coffee cup stain, with letters made out in the same way next to it spelling out "woopps".
* TheSmartGuy: His comics contain many a GeniusBonus. He even explains a couple of hard sciences on his website.
* TeasingCreator / TrollingCreator: ''The'' trolling creator. [[MemeticMutation You cannot defeat Hussie in a creator-trolloff. He is simply the best there is.]] It should be noted, however, that he does it [[{{Tsundere}} simply out of affection for the fans]].
* TheWalrusWasPaul: Occasionally.
* {{Troll}}: After exploring Picard's painting a collage of the scenes from ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iTsLZFaYIw a frank evaluation]]", Data proceeds to sloppily paint horse porn over it, much to the chagrin of a crying Picard. Data could barely hold his laughter after leaving the room.
** Hussie himself, though far more so during his earlier days on the internet (although see TrollingCreator, above).
* {{Tsundere}}: Picard in the edit "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcRg2RiLKzo such tenderness]]", who expresses his hidden love for Riker as he watches him caress Geordi's feet on his screen with a declaration that can be heard throughout the entire Enterprise.
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lqxq02uuKV1qcpbpwo1_r1_500.jpg D'awww]].
* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: The primary point of ''What A Scoop!''.
