New Artist – Eddie White

July 7, 2017 We are thrilled to have Eddie White as part of our talented team of illustrators. Eddie brings to paper what he describes as “‘a whimsical, cheeky and bizaarre window into a wild and wonderful cinematic parallel world’. This cinematic feeling of a sneak peak into a moment or a scene of someone’s private life is what we love about Eddie’s work and comes through the eyes of a director. In 2009 Eddie (with art director/animator Ari Gibson) won an Australian Film Institute (AFI) Award for Short Animation for The Cat Piano narrated by Nick Cave. The film was also shortlisted for Best Short Animated Film for the 82nd Academy Awards. We are sure you will enjoy his work as much as we do. All his work is hand drawn and hand painted and new work arrives with us daily. When we talked to Eddie about what sparks an idea for him he replied ” It’s a compulsive need to capture unexpected visual moments that when collide, feel amusingly to make sense’. And amuse us he does.
