Chris Ede's Profile Photo

When a comic shop opened in Chichester, it finally broke the ennui Chris Ede was experiencing growing up on one of the town’s council estates. He was down there all the time, and eventually wangled a job in the shop. Living upstairs was Ian Churchill, a Marvel artist, who shared his drawing secrets with young Chris. The experience set him on the road to becoming a freelance illustrator. Chris loves Marmite, and hates boy racers.

Training

After gaining a first class degree in Illustration from Portsmouth University, Chris went on to train with McFaul Studio and Mega Munden.

Approach

By carefully layering and organising all his Photoshop work, Chris aims to be as flexible as he can for his clients. Though Photoshop is his preference because he likes to retain the feel of the human hand and plenty of texture in his work, Chris also creates vector artwork in Illustrator. He has built up a huge library of marks and textures to call upon whenever they’re needed in a project.

Styles

Chris has developed several different styles, tailored to the various clients he works for in advertising, editorial, publishing and music. Each has its own nuances, and can be tweaked and fine tuned to suit any new project. His styles include: Sport - line drawings with an urban or street art look, including graffiti marks and bursting with colour, vibrancy and energy. Editorial - a naïve, loose drawing style, which is simple and conceptual, and often marked by gritty textures. Book - beautiful tight line drawing, with the focal point more detailed and colourful. Often this style features symmetrical elements, animal subject matter, and is bold in composition. Music - Photographic elements mixed with vector art or line work, with a bold composition that pops out and strong typography.
