Who is Timothy Banks?

I've work with great clients like TOWN magazine, Paste, Nike, Egmont, Faber & Faber, and Nickelodeon – and my work is proudly represented by Shannon Associates, NYC.


I've been recognized by Society of Illustrators Los Angeles, Spectrum 21, 3×3 Magazine, Creative Quarterly, PLAY! Illustration and Showcase 100 to name a few. Plus! I've illustrated dozens of children’s books, like the Wizard of Oz story for younger readers, and most recently Nian, The Chinese New Year Dragon for Sleeping Bear Press.

My studio is located in Charleston, SC, USA. Locally, I've created the poster for the Piccolo Spoleto Festival here in Charleston, one of the largest, comprehensive arts festivals in the US. And in 2017, I illustrated and designed the poster for YALLFest, the world's largest Young Adult literary festival. Last, but not least, I created the official poster for the Charleston Farmers Market in 2018.

When I'm not creating, you can find me and my beautiful wife, Erin Bennett Banks – also an amazing artist, and our family watching alligators swim by our house.
