T.L. McBeth Headshot.jpg


Hello! I'm a children's book author & illustrator who lives and works in New York City. Here's a short bio about me:

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 a love for expressive and minimal 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, Ogilvy and the Big Words Small Stories series, and the author/illustrator of Robot in Love. His work has been featured by Scholastic, Threadless, TODAY, The Wall Street Journal and displayed at the Society of Illustrators. He is currently an artist-in-residence at Wetherby-Pembridge School New York.
