Gavin Curtis was born in New York City. His love of writing and drawing developed very early when he was in elementary school.  He used to create comic books to entertain his friends.  When he got older, Gavin went to college at the School of Visual Arts. There he studied cartooning with renowned storyteller Will Eisner, and even collaborated with Mr. Eisner on two covers for the school’s comic book magazine entitled Gallery.  He also studied children’s book illustration and created the book dummy for his first picture book Grandma’s Baseball.

When Gavin finished school, he began working for Marvel Comics where he drew and eventually wrote many stories.  He also completed graduate school to get his master's degree in education and become an elementary school teacher.

Today, an educator, writer and illustrator, Mr. Curtis continues to push himself creatively.  Channeling his inner child, the artist recently completed drawings for a toy patent he will soon bring to market.  Stay tuned!
