A Career in Cartooning!

(For ages 7 and up)

An approximately 45-60 minute fun visual presentation focuses on Eddie’s career in cartooning and animation. Starting with some of his early childhood art, Eddie will tell how he worked his way to become an author and  Disney animation artist. He also covers the creation of his book series Red’s Planet and how an animated TV show is created. There will be time for Q&A afterward.

If your school or library has copies of Eddie’s graphic novels, please display them before the author visit. The more familiar kids are with Red’s Planet in advance, the richer the overall experience will be. If you’d like to have students purchase the books from your school, that info is below.

Eddie will happily sign and sketch in all copies of his books for the group. If this is something you feel students will want, please allow time for that as well.

Optional Workshop


(For ages 7 and up)

What are the keys to creating believable new worlds and the your own original characters? How can your drawings convey personality? Bring your notebooks, pens, crayons, and thinking caps for this fun and collaborative workshop with Red’s Planet creator and Disney artist Eddie Pittman to create all-new, one-of-a-kind characters.

Virtual Visit

Eddie is happy to drop in for a 30- to 40-minute virtual visit (using Zoom or platform of choice) with classrooms, book groups, and library groups that have read at least one of his books. The visit will include a short visual presentation, a live drawing demonstration, and time for Q&A afterward. It is always helpful when kids prepare questions in advance!

Do you sometimes have the feeling that you’re running into the same obstacles over and over again? Many of my conflicts have the same feel to them, like “Hey, I think I’ve been here before”
