Don Nedobeck (August 26, 1935 - October 23, 2020)
In the early 80’s Nedobeck signed on with a publisher and produced three children’s books. Since then there have been several editions and to date there are well over a half million ‘Nedo-books’ in circulation. In the early 90’s Nedobeck produced his first annual, Fanciful Feline calendar which has become a yearly ‘must have’ for cat lovers everywhere.
Here’s what the Washington Post had to say about Nedobeck’s creations:
“Nedobeck’s creatures all possess a slightly quizzical, satisfying refined look; they are animals who might be dukes or marchionesses-played by Alec Guinness & Margaret Rutherford -in costume.”
If you ask Nedobeck to describe his work he’s likely to tell you to, “just take a look…because after all, a picture is worth a thousand words.”
