KaPow Comics & Coffee Spotlight Gallery
For our local artist showcases this year, we are partnering with one artist at a time and will hang their original artwork in our shop for a period of about 4 weeks. Some original pieces will be available for sale and prints will be available for purchase throughout the gallery show.
The Art of Tim Farnsworth
Our current Spotlight Gallery artist is Tim Farnsworth.
Tim Farnsworth is a self-taught artist who learned by drawing Disney and other Sunday morning cartoons. At the age of 30, he went back to school to earn a degree in Graphic Design where he was one of only three students to freehand his drawings. It was also around this time that he started drawing Comic book characters.
Jack the King Kirby, John Romita Sr, and Steve Ditko are among Tim’s favorite comic artists. He can copy the style of most artists. So, when it was difficult to find prints and posters of the covers he liked, he started to draw the covers on his own. He put this talent to use working with Xtreme Masterworks creating the Iconic Covers Coloring book with Marvel’s approval.
All of Tim’s work is done by hand with pencil and ink with Prismacolor and Copic markers.
In addition to working full-time and drawing, Tim loves comics, going to conventions, riding Motorcycles and Nebraska football.
