Ed van Schuijlenburg began his career at the animation department of the Toonder Studios, where he even participated in the classic movie 'Asterix en Cleopatra'. He turned to freelancing for De Geïllustreerde Pers in 1969.
Het feest (Pepspotter from 1971)
He made a couple of 'Pepspotters' in Pep with text by Rens Benerink and some 'Jetsons' stories for the Flintstones comic book, and he made his first appearance in Donald Duck weekly in early 1970.
He was one of the early artists for the Dutch Disney weekly, doing many cover illustrations and comics starring 'Little Hiawatha', 'Jiminy Cricket', 'Big Bad Wolf' and, his personal favorite, 'B'rer Rabbit'. He became a staff artist with the magazine's publisher Oberon in 1977, and succeeded Daan Jippes as art supervisor in 1980. In this occupation, he was mainly active coaching other artists. During Ed's tenure, several talented artists found their way to the magazine, such as Michel Nadorp, Wilma van den Bosch, Mau Heymans, Bas Heymans and Sander Gulien.
He continued to do an occasional cover illustration for Donald Duck and the other Disney publications (like the cover of the annual Sinterklaas issue), as well as some illustrations for Bobo. He also provided illustrations and a comic strip for the book 'Goochelen met Hans Kazan', published by Oberon in 1985. Ed retired in May 2006, moved from Amsterdam to Haaren in the province of Groningen, and now spends his time experimenting with Flash animation and writing his memoires. During the Houten comics festival in 2009, he was awarded the Bulletje & Boonestaak plate for his work for Disney.
