Tim Sale was born in Ithaca, New York, on May 1st, 1956, but grew up in Seattle, Washington.
After studying art at the University of Washington for two years, he moved to New York City and attended the John Buscema Workshop and The School of Visual Arts just long enough to realize he didn't want to be in school anymore, whereupon he returned to Seattle and worked a variety of odd jobs from Taco Time to grocery store clerk.
While keeping his hand lazily in the art world by partnering with his sister, Maggie, in GREY ARCHER PRESS, he didn't return to comics until inking Phil Foglio on Warp Graphics MYTH ADVENTURES in 1983. Tim was hired to pencil, ink and letter THIEVES' WORLD for Donning/Starblaze in 1985, then, after hooking up with agent Mike Friedrich and STAR-REACH, began his mainstream comics career by meeting Matt Wagner, Diana Schutz, and Barbara Randall at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Ms. Randall introduced Tim to Jeph Loeb, and the rest has been downhill ever since.
Tim currently lives with his two dogs, Hotspur and Shelby, in southern California.
