T. Kyle Gentry (with a soft "g" like in "gentleman") is the illustrator of Grandpa
for Sale, written by Dotti Enderle and Vicki Sansum.

Kyle was born in Royal Oak, Michigan in 1974. Inspired largely by Disney
movies, Star Wars, and Saturday morning cartoons, he began drawing at an early
age. After graduating from High School, Kyle attended college at the Ringling
School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, where he was introduced to the
work of classic illustrators such as Norman Rockwell, J.C. Leyendecker,
Alphonse Mucha, and Maxfield Parrish, as well as contemporary illustrators such
as Scott Gustafson, Peter DeSeve, James Christiensen, C.F. Payne, Mark
Summers, and Michael Whelan. Soon after
graduating with a BFA in 1997, he
began illustrating professionally.

Kyle has illustrated for the medical, editorial, stationery, electronic, and print
industries. He is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and
Illustrators, and delights in making people smile with his whimsical images and
characters. Although his first love is pencil, he completes his illustration with
watercolor and pen and ink, or digitally.

T. Kyle Gentry currently lives in Orlando, Florida with his wife Katie and their cat
Seuss. See more of Kyle's work on his
personal website.
