Eda Kaban was born and raised in Turkey with a great passion for drawing, reading, and monkey bars. She has traveled the globe wearing a backpack slightly larger than herself. Her travels brought her to the States where she studied art. She graduated from the Academy of Art University with a BFA in Illustration, where she was a three time Society of Illustrators winner. She presently teaches Color and Design at the Academy to the next generation of artists. Her work can be seen in galleries from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and in several magazines and books. She has worked with companies such as Lufthansa Airlines, EA Games, 826 Valencia, and Dark Horse Comics. She continues to search for stories through love, laughter, and observations of the people around her.
