T. L. McBeth - Illustrator
T.L. McBeth was born in Findlay, Ohio. As a child, he grew up reading Dr. Seuss and H.A. & Margret Rey (although he mainly looked at the pictures). He studied illustration in college, where he developed his love of expressive and minimalist characters. In 2015, he moved to New York City to pursue an illustration career and he is currently lucky enough to illustrate picture books full-time. T.L. works from his small apartment in Manhattan, where he spends most of his time. When he does leave the house, he likes to watch the dogs in the neighborhood dog park and visit bookstores for inspiration. He is the illustrator of Stegothesaurus and the Big Words Small Stories series, and is also currently writing and illustrating a few books of his own. His work has been featured on Threadless and displayed at the Society of Illustrators.
