Presenting:  k e l l y  K E N N E D Y


Born and raised in sunny Southern California with all it's pop culture probably explains a little about my style. I'm a fan of design work from 40's and 50's Disney as well as classic authors like Jack London and even the Hardy Boys, so I'm a little nostalgic, but I always put a fresh spin on things. Humor also plays a big part in my artwork. 
Besides a busy career in children's publishing I've worked in the animation business as a storyboard artist and created an award winning short (The Baseball Card Shop for Nickelodeon - which you can see on YouTube). 
A graduate of California State University Long Beach, I work in both traditional gouache paint and digital mediums.
My wife and I live near the beach with our two kids and a cat named DiscoBall.
