Kenton VisserDenver, CO, US
A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), I am working as a freelance illustrator. My book credits include a wordless picture book, Fish Odyssey, as well as Kenton Visser's Really Terrible Activity Book and Kenton Visser's Really Tiny, Really Terrible Activity Book. My work has included poster, book, culinary and web illustration and my art has appeared in numerous exhibitions across the United States. I run a blog, Super List Saturday and contribute to the Quick Draw Collective. Recurring subject matter in my work includes interior space, fish, toy blocks and rocket ships. When not drawing or painting, I enjoy biking and baking artisan bread. Raised in Champaign, Illinois, I currently live in Denver, Colorado.
Maps By Kenton Visser
This is an interpretation of the neighborhood in Illinois where I lived from the ages of eight to eighteen. There were these two subdivisions right next to each other, both of which had the word "lake" in their names. The more upscale subdivision had big, carefully landscaped lake, but ours was a murky borrow-pit pond next to the highway. And yes, I did have that serious look on my face for most of my childhood.
