I am an Illustrator and designer living and working in New York City. My professional career began in 1995 with my first piece for MAD Magazine. I continued as an independent illustrator until 1999 when I joined SME Branding as a Senior Designer. There, I created identities and built brands for both professional and collegiate sports teams and events. Excited to marry the business knowledge I refined working at a top firm to my wide repertoire of creative skills, I founded Timothy Shamey Illustration and Design in 2001. Today, I continue to provide conceptual services, illustration in various media, identity design, art direction and creative consultation to an ever-growing list of clients. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of working with such companies as the NFL, NIKE, ESPN, Disney, Madison Square Garden and Kmart, realizing projects from ideas to deliverables. While I now have a network of creative professionals I collaborate with on large projects, my business relationships remain intimate. Working closely with my clients allows me to customize each project to their specific needs.

I received my BA in painting with an art history minor from SUNY New Paltz in 1993. In 1996, I earned my MA in drawing with a computer graphics minor from New York University.
