Meet the Author

Kelly Murdock has been involved with more computer books than he cares to count @md to the point that he avoids the computer book section of the bookstore, except for the graphics section, which still remains an obsession.

His book credits include various Web, graphics, and multimedia titles, including two editions of the 3ds max Bible, Master HTML and XHTML Visually, JavaScript Blueprints, and co-authoring the Illustrator 9 Bible. Kelly also co-authored Laura Lemay's Web Workshop: 3D Graphics and VRML 2 at a time when we all thought VRML was going somewhere.

With a background in engineering and computer graphics, Kelly has been all over the 3D industry. He's used high-level CAD workstations for product design and analysis, completed several large-scale visualization projects, created 3D models for feature films, worked as a freelance 3D artist, and even done some 3D programming.
