Tim Jacobus’ art is probably the most well known in the world and a part of every child’s youth if not their nightmares. As the artist for the Goosebumps series there isn’t a piece of cover art that won’t be imbedded in our brains until the end of time.

We discuss his humble beginnings as he always knew he wanted to illustrate book covers from the beginning, his first cover, how his style had developed, the advent of going digital, how he navigates his time and art based on an employers needs, who he admires, his favorite pieces and even dabbling into the wold of NFTs. This one was really a blast. Enjoy guys!

Thank you so much for listening. If you can please remember to like, subscribe, and review the podcast to help keep us going!
