Illustrator of The Everyday Autism Series
Andrew’s artistic tendencies began to show at an early age. While attending Takapuna Grammar School, he used these talents to earn pocket money drawing assignment cover pages and marker-pen-tattoos for classmates. It wasn’t until he graduated from a Bachelor of Graphic Design degree at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) that those abilities were further developed and enhanced to a professional level.
Currently he is living in New Zealand which provides a rich source of inspiration with it’s rugged landscape and diverse multicultural community.
He has been working full-time as a senior graphic artist for the New Zealand Herald newspaper for more than 17 years while also doing freelance illustrations.
Married to a Malaysian Chinese wife with a young family. His biggest fan and also biggest critic is his 10-year-old rascal daughter.
