Kyle McBride grew up drawing and traveling around the world with his family, following his father’s work. The family lived in Singapore and Australia for several years, where his favorite subject matter was “The Great White Quokka.”
He explored various mediums as a child. He painted landscapes with his grandmother in the summers, and sketched Star Wars spaceships in the margins of his homework.
His first Claymation production, The Blob’s Revenge, played to a packed couch of 3 relatives. It garnered rave reviews.
Kyle also pursued multiple musical interests. He plays the clarinet and saxophone and was a member of the University of Texas Longhorn Band for 5 years. He sings in a cover band of 50’s-70’s music, where he channels the spirit and voice of Elvis Presley.
In addition to his humorous and quirky children’s illustration, Kyle has also been a graphic designer and art director. His clients have included Ballet Austin, IBM, Dell, AT&T, Microsoft, HP, and Lennar Homes.
Kyle is a member of SCBWI and currently lives near Austin, TX with his wife and two daughters.
