Tim Foley (update)

Tim Foley
Tim Foley is a long-established freelance illustrator based in Michigan, who I profiled back in 2009.

His clients include The Wall Street Journal, Consumer Reports, Barrons, Penguin Books, Harper Collins and Dover Publications, among others.

Though he also works in paint, pastel and other drawing media, Foley’s primary medium is colored scratchboard.

Scratchboard often invites a precise, controlled method, but Foley applies an energetic touch, combined with a vibrant approach to color, to give his scratchboard pieces a lively presence.

There is a cross section of his work, in a variety of media, on Foley’s website, and more on his blog and his tumblog. There are also portfolios of his work on Found Folios and Hire and Illustrator. In addition, you can find a number of his designs applied to products in his Zazzle Store.

Foley is also a musician, and member of a band called The JukeJoint Handmedowns.
