Scod” is best known as one-third of beloved Australian idiot-band Tripod, with whom hes won an ARIA and lost a GRAMMY. Hes also a veteran writer, composer and illustrator for videogames, animation and kidspublishing, working for such clients as Ubisoft, Wizards of the Coast, Penguin Random House, the Cartoon Network and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. You can see more of his work at For a complete history of Scods haircuts, check out Spicks and Specks reruns on the ABC.

Where were you born?

I was born in Boronia which is somewhere in Victoria’s east. Honestly not sure where. Haven’t been back. 

What other jobs have you had?

As far as the arts are concerned, I have had, um, all the jobs.  I started as a set designer for the theatre, I’ve been a book illustrator, a writer and storyboard artist for animation, and of course a musical comedian. Renaissance man? Undiagnosed ADHD? Pundits differ. 

What have been the highlights of your career?

I’m lucky to have had quite a number of highlights, some of which I can even list here. My first rehearsal of the original show Tripod wrote for the Melbourne Symphony. Gathering at Scott Brennan’s house for the airing of the first Ep of Skithouse. Getting rained on at the Grammys. 

What are you passionate about?

I’m very interested in demystifying creativity for people. The process of making (books, songs, games, you name it) is an actual thing human people do! And you could do it too. 

Haven’t I seen you before?

It’s possible you saw me on Red Faces that one time. 



Our Year 2, 3 and 4 students absolutely loved Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar and were thoroughly engaged through their entire presentation.  From the first song, through the inspiring journey of how the Super Moopers came to be, a very entertaining reading of one of the stories, and together creating a new character from scratch, our students were captivated.  It was wonderful to see the collaborative work of Fiona and Scott, not only as author and illustrator of the series, but also the ease with which they work together during the presentation.  Thank you Fiona and Scott for a very inspiring and lively presentation showing the joy of creating wonderful stories for our children.

Our 1/2 children loved hearing about The Super Moopers from author, Fiona Harris and illustrator, Scott Edgar. In a fun and engaging way, Fiona and Scott shared how they created a new world and peopled it with amazing characters. The children joined in singing along with the Moopertown song and laughed lots as Scott drew some of the characters they suggested. After the visit the children were keen to create their own Super Moopers and couldn’t stop writing and talking about the books. They even created a class mural about their own imaginary world. A great way to get children inspired to read, write and draw and to enrich their understanding of how books are made.

Our school visit from Super Moopers creators, Fiona Harris and Scott Edgar, added so much value to our 1/2 English program! Through their engaging and interactive presentation, which included singing, storytelling and drawing, Fiona and Scott shared their journey as writer and illustrator, from generating ideas, showing persistence and the continual desire to grow as creators. Not only did they promote skills and attitudes that make a good writer, artist and reader, but they assisted our students in making the writing and illustrating process purposeful. We thoroughly enjoyed their time with us and cannot wait for the release of more Mooper books!
