Timothy Young has been drawing funny animals and all kinds of weird creatures for most of his life. He drew them at home lying on the living room rug while watching television and at school on his homework and test papers. He wondered who made the cartoons and books he liked and who got to make the toys he played with. Little did he know then that he would one day get to do those things.
As he got older he got better and better at drawing. He went to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y. where he studied illustration and sculpting. Soon after college he got his first job designing and sculpting animation models for the television show?Pee-Wee? Playhouse. Other highlights of his career were working for the Muppets and being the design director for 2 different toy companies. After this really long, fun career designing creatures and characters for animation, toys??illustrations he now also writes and illustrates picture books.
