Tedd M. Walley
|(Creator - Mathilda)|
|Tedd M. Walley was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and has been drawing (and reprimanded for drawing) since the early age of eight. Not one to pass up the opportunity to put a doubter in their place, he earned college degrees in advertising design and commercial art and has since been plying his creativity and talents in those fields in a variety of ways for almost twenty years for the likes of Elmer’s candy, Gulf Coast Bank and Trust, Blue Plate Mayo, Luzianne, JFG, Wick Fowler’s, Zatarain’s, Tony Chachere’s, Adler’s Jewelers, Rubenstein Bros, and Inside Northside magazine. |
Much like the city he calls home, Tedd is a mish-mash of colorful history, which has included celebrity bodyguard work, graphic designer for an advertising agency, t-shirt artist for rock bands, advice columnist, non-Katrina evacuee, and now college professor and comic book writer/artist.
Tedd continues to make his home in New Orleans, LA on Bayou St. John where he balances a career as a college professor of computer graphic design, graphic design, cartoon and traditional illustration [Delgado, City Park Campus] with his personal life, pursuit of a BFA in animation, and publishing duties for his comic book Mathilda™.
