Turtle illustration for Great Barrier Reef Foundation

Turtle illustration for Great Barrier Reef Foundation

“Edd was fantastic to collaborate with on this project.

He was really able to reflect the feel of the green sea turtle we were looking to use in the artwork but also give it character and style.

We were thrilled with the outcome and all members of our community have just fallen in love with our turtle hatchling as a face of the issues of marine debris.”

“I love Edd’s work. He has created a fabulous avatar and art work for my new business website. Edd works carefully. He listened and reflected, before preparing drafts for comment, and in response, he created unique branding with a style that reflects my personality and interests. Feedback from friends (the most testing audience) has been an enthusiastic thumbs up.”

“I used Edd’s drawings in a presentation and they had an immediate impact, making people smile and take more notice. The audience was watching eagerly for the next sketch. He listened to my requirement and produced stunning g interpretations.”

Fishing Is Cruel Writers for Animals illustration

Chapter Illustrations for Writers for Animals book

“Edd produced highly original art work for the book Writers for Animals, and did so to an incredibly tight deadline. I found his attitude at once both professional and very approachable; we communicated via email from opposite sides of the world and the relationship was very easy. Edd worked within my general guidelines but very little real instruction, and yet managed to create images that were perfect for my publication. I was thrilled with what he came up with.”

“Edd was engaged to produce some images for use at events to inspire people to be more sustainable. The brief was a fairly loose one, that Edd interpreted wonderfully, providing images that encapsulated the messages that were wanting to be portrayed really well. Edd was passionate about his work, and his values aligned well with the work we wanted done. Our images are used widely within our organisation, and continue to help us engage with the community in a fun and uplifting way.”

“To promote our Pollinator Link project we needed a unique trademark that would capture the heart and intent of the initiative. Edd delivered a logo that immediately communicates the aims and makes a sign community members are proud to display.”

SWARA Cartoon workshop

Cartoon Workshop at SWARA

“Edd Cross has volunteered at SWARA for the past year facilitating arts projects for people who experience disability and disadvantage. Edd has helped our members in numerous ways , stimulating their creative juices by getting people involved in fanzine design, cartoon drawing & story boarding. He is an excellent artist and a great teacher. I would certainly recommend Edd to any community organisation”
