The Illustration of Kevin Kidney
The first time I saw Kevin Kidney’s artwork, I fell in love with it. It felt like retro Disney, like the Tiki room, like a lot of the art direction I had seen around Disney culture, but never had seen recently. I thought it was some amazing artist from 40 or so years ago.
Turns out Kevin Kidney was a designer for Disney. As of now, he’s a self-employed art director, illustrator, writer, sculptor, and maker of things. Things. All sorts of things. He’s obsessed with the style of the 60s and building art with anything: paper, paintbrushes, wood, ceramic, leather, even feathers. His art style is unique and is medium seems limitless.
