It’s a huge loss to the industry, I’ve met Tim several times over the years at shows and I always admired his style, art, and dedication to drawing comics. He’s made a lifelong career of drawing comics and telling stories and inspired so many new artists thanks to his work. From seeing him at shows like Thought Bubble in the UK he was always so happy just drawing and talking to fans. He had such a positive attitude and relentless energy at shows and I can’t think of many artists that could rival that.
Tim won an Eisner Award in 1999 in the “Best Artist/Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team”.
He’s probably best known for his work on Batman, being one of the Dark Knight’s most influential artists he and Frank Miller helped reinvent Batman, and Tim’s work heavily inspired the latest movie The Batman which starred Robert Pattinson.
