Tim Palin


Tim Palin was born in Salem, MA to a non-witching family (as far as he knows). But he always felt a little magic when he was creating. From elementary school and beyond, Tim took countless art classes. He had a knack for making works of art using everything from pencils and clay to egg cartons and popsicle sticks! Today he uses his computer and his imagination to make the world a cuter (and more beautifully designed) place. When Tim isn’t illustrating or designing books, you can find him baking cakes and binge-watching cheesy sitcoms with his super-charming husband, Michael and three canine beasts, Edith, Emmett and Esteban (who goes by ‘Steve’).

Meet the Artist with Diana Toledano. Follow Diana at @dianatoledano . ❤️ Diana likes: Listening to YA audiobooks while she works. Eating delicious food. Dancing first, thinking later. Capturing great moments with her Polaroid camera. Smelling jasmine. Remembering all the delicious food she ate and wondering when she'll eat it again. Drawing anywhere she goes. Cuddling with her cats. Spending time at museums. #inspiration #dianatoledano #mtabookmarkliterary #mta #meettheartist #womenillustrators #kidlit #kidlitart
