after studying film and illustration at the ART CENTER COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN, TOMMY LEE EDWARDS took the comics industry by storm with his illustrations on such titles as X-MEN, DAREDEVIL, MARVEL 1985, BATMAN, and THE QUESTION. proving to be one of the most respected and versatile artists working today, he has also designed video games like COMMAND AND CONQUER, JAMES BOND, and PREY. EDWARDS created the licensing style-guides for films such as HARRY POTTER and the SORCERER’S STONE, MEN IN BLACK II, SUPERMAN RETURN, STAR WARS, INDIANA JONES, and BATMAN BEGINS. for lucasfilm, he’s created countless pieces for books, merchandise, magazines, and posters.
EDWARDS perhaps feels most at home putting his imagination and storytelling flare to the test while working as a conceptual and storyboard artist for film. recently he collaborated with the HUGHES BROTHERS on their DENZEL WASHINGTON epic THE BOOK OF ELI, and now re-teamed with them as the lead concept artist for the live-action film version of AKIRA. Currently EDWARDS' work can be found every six weeks with TURF, his creator-owned comic published series by image.
