Portrait by Carissa Susilo

Ed is a production artist, an illustrator, a fine artist, and most importantly an art communicator. He spent years working in both animation and gaming studios in San Francisco and Vancouver while also instructing for the Academy of Art University.

His illustrations have been in multiple international publications notably Spectrum Fantastic Art. His work has also been nominated for a Chesley Award in the Unpublished Monochrome category. His fine art paintings have been recognized in international juried competitions such as the Annual International Representational Show by Federation of Canadian Artists and the International ARC Salon Competition.

This diverse interest in art stems from a deep appreciation in the foundation of visual arts, about which he is always happy to chat with his students at Langara Centre for Entertainment Arts.
