When Andrew Faulkner isn't finding new ways to use Photoshop CS4 to create 3D art, he runs afstudio design, a graphics studio in the SF Bay Area. He's a veteran of demanding design and production environments, and as senior designer for Macworld Magazine he gained his reputation for always displaying grace under pressure. Following his creative passions, Andrew launched afstudio in 1993, and has built a solid reputation for making complicated projects look easy. Print publication clients include Sunset Magazine, Peachpit Press, and Chronicle Books. New media clients include Adobe, Intuit Inc., Oracle, and Paypal.com. He stays humble by continually being defeated in Guitar Hero by his eleven-year-old daughter.
