  BIO  
 

GIDEON KENDALL was born on December 12, 1966 in Austin, Texas, and lived on a commune in rural West Virginia between the ages of 5 and 12. His mother instilled in him a love of drawing at an early age. She left a ballpoint pen in his crib, and Gideon covered his sheets with drawings of cars, roads, and buildings. He developed an equal love for Dr. Seuss, M.C. Escher, Robert Crumb, Durer, Daumier, and superhero comics. He graduated high school in the Philadelphia area and then moved to New York City to attend art school.

He graduated from The Cooper Union for Science and Art with a BFA in 1989. For the past 20 years he has been working as an artist, illustrator, animation designer, and musician in Brooklyn.

He has shown his paintings and drawings in several NYC galleries including PS 122, HERE Gallery, and Ethan Cohen Fine Arts.

He animation design credits include "Pepper Ann"for ABC/Disney and  "Codename:  Kids Next Door" and "Robotomy" for Cartoon Network.

He has illustrated articles and record covers for companies such as Children's Television Workshop, Scholastic, Geffen Records, HEEB Magazine, and College Music Journal. 

In 2001 Gideon published his first children's book; "Littlebat's Halloween Story", written by Diane Mayr and published by Albert Whitman & Co.  "Dino Pets", written by Lynn Plourde, which was published by Dutton in 2007. The sequel, "Dino Pets Go To School" will be published this year. In addition to picture books, Gideon also enjoys illustrating Middle-grade novels. He illustrated The Seems series for Bloomsbury and is currently working on the Elliot series for Sourcebooks. He continues to plug away on his own picture books, and graphic novels as well. 

Gideon's hobbies include writing songs, cooking, eating lots of Korean and Mexican food, playing ultimate frisbee, exploring Brooklyn on bicycle, and trying to keep his old house from falling down.

In October of 1998 Gideon married Julie Peppito, a sculptor, painter, jewelry maker, and playground designer. In 2008 they had a little boy and they named him Milo. They share a house and studio in Brooklyn.
