About the Illustrator
The illustrator of David Bianchi's Blue Chip Kids is Kyle Bianchi, David Bianchi's nephew and a student at Boston's Northeastern University.
Kyle's passion for drawing began when he was very young. As a student majoring in Graphic and Information Design, Kyle has continued to develop his artistic expertise and to expand his interest areas by studying painting, architecture, photography, videography, and graphic design.
Kyle was originally asked to illustrate Bianchi's book when he was a junior in high school. A request for 20 illustrations grew into more than 160 cartoons which were included in the published book. Kyle has continued to work with his uncle on developing the Blue Chip Kids brand. He served as the illustrator for the public television series and through his work he hopes to reach students young and old around the world and help educated them about the importance of understanding money matters.
