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 flare 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 utilized all aspects of storytelling technique, with TLE creating the ground-breaking interactive animated web-series from a script by Edgar Wright. TLE recently wrote two animated pilots for Fox and Google, and created a multi-media film/music/comic series with Ed Banger Records and Dark Horse Comics called Vandroid. Currently TLE is working as the production designer on a new film from director Kerry Conran.
