Who Is Timothy Banks?
A Working Artist.Like his ancestor, Davy Crockett, Tim was born on a mountaintop in Asheville, North Carolina. Picking up a crayon at the tender age of three – he never looked back. He’s now a professional artist that draws and paints pictures for books, magazines and pretty much anything cool. Tim has created images for Nike, Marvel, McGraw-Hill and many other fine companies. Recently he was honored to have his work receive a Merit award from the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles.
Leaving the mountains behind, Tim now spends his days being inspired by the sea and palm trees in Charleston, South Carolina. He’s looking forward to spending sometime with your project. You can contact Tim directly, or his fine representatives at Wilkinson Studios, Inc.

"I can remember as a very young kid, my mom always letting me draw in a spiral notebook in church,” he says. “That was my one way of making it through the two-plus hour services — so long. As I got a little bit older, I would draw on tithing envelopes. I tried to challenge myself to do a complete picture."
