Kenton was born and raised in the Midwest, where he received a degree in technical illustration from Purdue University. His life journey has been quite an adventure, from living on a sailboat and working in corporate communications, to living on land and working for a decade as a bicycle messenger. He has done storyboarding, motion graphics, and freelance illustrations for corporate communications. Kenton has knack for bringing out smiles in children, both on paper and off. His favorite quote is from his older brother: “I love life, and life loves me.” He is currently building up his children’s book portfolio with a focus on graphic novels. Kenton lives in Monterey, California, with his bike, wife, daughter, cat, and dog.
