Eddie Young Illustration & Design
Eddie, a Southern California native has always had a deep love and appreciation for art and especially humorous illustration. At a young age his art influences ranged from Mickey Mouse cartoons to Mad Magazine. His continuing, lifelong passion for art (and music) have sustained him his whole life.
His 27 year career as a humorous cartoon illustrator has honed his skills in rendering original and licensed characters with the same fervor. Eddie’s work is well know throughout the motion picture and Television media and his client list includes Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera, and Fox. His packaging designs have graced such companies as Tyco Toys, Milton Bradley and Mattel.
In keeping with the cutting edge of the commercial art industry, in 1995, Eddie began using a computer for an enhanced, more effective method for rendering finished color illustrations. Working digitally allows him to incorporate innovative dimensions in the area of design, type, and special effects to produce a solid, cost effective and more desirable finished artwork for his client’s product and the consumer.
Today, Eddie has moved into the most creative area of all, character development for product branding. He designs characters for companies both big and small. From start up companies looking for a logo to Time/Warner Cable, Abbott Laboratories or children’s book publishers and toy manufacturing companies,”Eddie Young Builds Good Characters!” Whether you’re looking for an “edgy” character wearing sun glasses, flowers that talk to one another, huggable alligators or hippos that dance, Eddie’s characters are “pure and from the heart.” And that natural genuineness translates into his artwork.
Video Production and Animation
Eddie has been happily editing, producing, and shooting Video Productions for over 15 years.
One of his Favorite Projects is a collaboration with his longtime friend and associate Scott Angle. They formed an E-card company called “Smiling Dog Cards”™, about four years ago. They create one minute movies featuring many endearing dog characters that deliver greetings of all kinds in an adorably funny way. Their cards are now being featured as an addition to the Rubber Chicken E-card family of animated greetings.
Eddie has produced Television Commercials, Infomercials, Corporate Videos, Explainer and Sales Support Videos for many companies.
Eddie is also been busy creating animations for iPhone and iPad apps, Online Promotions, TV Logos and many other projects.
Eddie is also an accomplished and much sought after professional musician and recording engineer. He plays Cello, Bass, Bass Flute and many Percussion Instruments. His home based recording studio is state of the art!
