ABOUT THE AUTHOR
CREATOR AND AUTHOR
Hello friends, my name is Chris and I’m the creator of Eddie the Yeti. I’m 37 years old, happily married, and the father of a sweet little boy named Levi, born May 2021. I’m an artist by nature and an avid hockey player. For the past 11 years I’ve worked for myself as a graphic designer, web designer and the occasional sign painter. I enjoy art, design, hockey, jiu jitsu, rock climbing, hiking and traveling.
My vision is that these stories will inspire young players to dream big, persevere, and reach their greatest potential. Because I believe that we are all capable of so much more, and that our potential is limited only by our own cognition. When I think about all the effort that’s gone into the first book, all the long nights, the revisions, the goof-ups, and the wonderful aha! moments, I know it’s still just one small step towards a bigger goal. My hope is that Eddie and his pals will encourage our young players to aspire both on and off the ice. Unfortunately, we’re not all going to make it to the NHL, but hopefully what we learn from playing this amazing game will be carried forward into our lives outside the rink. I hope that these books will serve as a positive example of what we’re all capable of achieving.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I look forward to watching this amazing venture unfold. I’d love to hear your feedback, questions, or about your own aspirations. Shoot me an email to [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you!
Despite being recognized for his drawing talents at an early age by his second grade teacher, Temiree didn’t consider taking art seriously until high school. It was only then did he realize the potential of having a career in the visual arts. His early work involved doing realistic portraits of animals and vehicles in his sketchbook, but later he moved onto cartooning, with a specific focus on anthropomorphism. After graduating from a local community college, he got hired by a former instructor to work at a nearby game studio as a Junior Artist, doing everything from 2D art to 3D modeling to animation. The various experiences led to Temiree becoming a generalist, but his inspirations and aspirations led him back to focusing on character art. After the game’s release, the team disbanded, whereby he switched gears to making a name for himself in the freelancing world as a character artist. In the five years since, he’s completed nearly a thousand illustrations for hundreds of clients, which is what led Christopher Scott to discover his work, scout his abilities and bring him onto the Eddie the Yeti project.
