A Master Of Illustration
Portsmouth Comic Con 2019 is only four months away and here’s a first spotlight post on one of the show’s US guests, Tommy Lee Edwards…
Proving to be one of the most respected and versatile creators working today, Tommy Lee Edwards has illustrated comics like Mother Panic (co-created with Gerard Way), Turf (co-created with Jonathan Ross), The Question and Wolverine. Beyond countless illustrations for books, merchandise, magazines, and posters, TLE perhaps feels most at home putting his imagination and storytelling flair to the test as a conceptual designer, storyboard artist, and director for film, animation, and games.
He’s collaborated with the Hughes Brothers as the concept artist on their Denzel Washington epic The Book Of Eli, and has also contributed to the design of many productions including Akira, Masters Of The Universe, Harry Potter, Superman Returns, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman Begins. Microsoft’s award-winning The Random Adventures Of Brandon Generator utilised interactive storytelling techniques, with Edwards directing the ground-breaking animated web-series from a script by Edgar Wright. Edwards recently directed a music video for David Holmes’ new band Unloved, and created a multi-media film/music/comic series with Ed Banger Records and Dark Horse Comics called Vandroid. Currently TLE is working on some creator-owned projects while designing a new movie for director Kerry Conran. His website is www.TommyLeeEdwards.com
We are pleased to welcome him to Portsmouth for the first time. Tickets for the Portsmouth Comic Con are available online here
