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 illustration.
She has worked with clients such as Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Nickelodeon, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, HarperCollins, Chronicle Books, Macmillan, Lufthansa Airlines, Wall Street Journal, and Boston Globe among others. Her illustrations have been recognized by Society of Illustrators, Creative Quarterly, American Illustration and 3X3. She is also currently working as a Character Designer on a to-be-announced TV show at Nickelodeon.
When she is not drawing, you can find her climbing some rocks, or biking the hills of the Bay Area. She currently resides in Oakland happily with her husband, their small son and two Siamese cats, where they continually water their plants too much.
