Jonathan: Good afternoon Tim! Please tell our readers a bit about yourself and what kind of art you love most!
I’m 45 years old and have been drawing professionally for over 30 years (so most of my life has been art centered). I grew up on comics, mostly Marvel books but my tastes have changed since then. My main artistic influences are Jack Kirby, Timothy Truman, George Perez, Berni Wrightson, Joe Mad, Tim Vigil, Mike Grell and lots of others. If I could take over any one Book, it would be either Fantastic Four or Swamp Thing. Those two titles have about everything I enjoy about the medium.
I love all genres, but especially Fantasy, Science fiction and Horror type things. My style tends to be “old school” which is traditional hands on drawing and inking/coloring, with little or no computer work involved. I like looking at digital style artwork, but I personally enjoy the hands on approach to art. I guess it was what I was raised on. Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s, early TSR Adventure Modules were what stuck in my head. Those early modules still are what I like to look at to this day. There’s just something magical about them.
