New Jersey born artist Bobby Timony has been writing and illustrating comics and drawing storyboards for over a decade.
Bobby’s career in professional art started with some of America’s top advertising agencies – including Bates Advertising, JWT, and BBDO, where he drafted storyboards for M&M, Campbell’s Soup, and Gillette.
In 2007, Bobby, along with his collaborator and twin brother Peter, debuted his paranormal detective webseries “The Night Owls” with DC Comics. In 2009, “The Night Owls” was nominated for multiple Harvey Awards for Best New Series and Best Online Series, and earned Bobby a nomination as the Best New Talent. When the print edition of “The Night Owls” debuted in 2010, the book received a Lulu nomination for Best Female Character and a a Cybil Award nomination for best Young Adult Graphic Novel. His work has been featured on MTV, Comic News Insider, Publishers’ Weekly, and The Examiner. In 2015 he won an Independent Book Publisher’s Award Gold Medal for his work on Monster Elementary.
Most recently Bobby has been hard at work on his own comics like Goblin Hood and The Horror Lovers on Comixology and Detectobot at Monkeybrain.
Bobby counts Carl Barks, Jack Cole, and E.C. Segar among his influences and is compelled to capture a bit of that unapologetic fun in his own work. He is an active member of the National Cartoonist’s Society, is a bona fide “No Prize” recipient, and lives in California with his wife and bunny.
In addition to his Illustration work, Bobby likes to make latex masks as well. Here’s a few of the ones he’s made so far.
