After qualifying with a Diploma in Graphic Design at Swinburne Institute of Technology, Edo walked straight into an 8 year career in the Animation Industry in Melbourne, Australia under the direction of renowned illustrator Peter Viska.  For Peter’s company Mickey Duck Animation and Viskatoons, Edo worked on many TV adverts and assisted in all phases of production on the ABC’s animated series Lil’ Elvis and the Truckstoppers. During this time he also self-published the comic book trilogy Finn, and assisted in the preproduction of various films for Anthony Lucas’ company 3D Films.


Edo then embarked on a more global perspective, and moved to Germany, where he decided to try his luck working full time on his chief passion, comics. Together with Thomas Gerhardt, Edo laboured on many pitches, submitting to an array of publishers over the next few years. He also landed a short-time gig drawing the comic-strip Avatars for the Dutch chat-site Pimpernel Online Entertainment.


Following 5 and a half years in Europe, Edo moved to the Far East, and between 2006-07 published 3 chapter-books in the series Agent Boo with Tokyopop, written by Alex De Campi. For the next year or so he continued to develop various pre-production titles with editor Tim Beedle.  Since then he has returned his attention on getting his own concepts published, with the added new career of raising a daughter.


After a brief stint in the USA, Edo is now back in Germany and set his focus on illustrating children’s books, collaborating with Thomas Gerhardt on Kylie’s Book of Monsters, and the almost completed The Owl’s Supper with Amanda Cartwright, scheduled to be self-published through Amazon later this year.
