My name is Edison and I have been a Classical 2D Animator for more than 25 years and I have worked as a Directing Animator in many features films such as Universal Pictures "Curious George", DreamWorks "Spirit" and 20th Century Fox "Anastasia" and "Titan A.E.". However, a few years ago, I had the opportunity to be introduced to the children's book illustration industry and I'm proud to have worked with several self published authors, as well as 4 coloring books by Kappa Publishing.
In 2010 and 2011 I taught Animation History at University of Advance Technology (UAT) here in Arizona as well Animation and drawing classes at Scottsdale Community College (SCC). I really loved teaching and passing along all the years of experience I acquired working in the animation industry in 3 different countries (Brazil, Ireland and USA).
I do believe that my experience as an Animator for a major Studio, as well as an Illustrator and Character Designer combined with my ability to direct several people while producing and approving quality work will benefit my students' needs for professional and personal tutoring in a workshop type of environment.
I can provide samples of my work as well answers any questions you might have. Although I am a Classic 2D animator, the principles of animation apply directly if you want to learn 3D and Character Design. I have a lot of experience that I want to pass along to people who love animation and drawing as much as I do. It would be a waste of time to keep all these years of learning inside and not be able to share with people who will benefit from my experiences.
