Tim Neil, born in 1954, is of Cajun/Irish decent and was raised in Houma, Louisiana. After graduating in 1972 from Terrebonne High School, he began his studies at the University of Southwestern Louisiana and received his B.F.A. degree in Applied Arts. In 1978, with his portfolio in hand, he drove his 1973 Ford Pinto across United States to Hollywood, California. The day after he arrived, Tim was hired on his first interview as the Art Director of KCET/Channel 28, the Los Angeles PBS station.
From that point on, Tim has had a successful career for decades making art for various clients in the movie, TV and music industries. His talent has been used for ads, posters, album covers, story-boards and more. Through the years, he has worked with advertising agencies, art directors, movie directors, and movie and TV stars. Everyone he's worked with has been consistently pleased with his artwork, fulfilling their creative needs. Some of his clients included Disney / DreamWorks / Paramount - CBS / NBC / ABC / HBO and variety of art studios and advertising agencies in the Los Angeles area. Tim joined S.A.G and dabbled in TV Acting in the 1990's.
After computers grew smaller in size and emailing images became posible and became easier, Tim realized in 2003, he could live anywhere and continue his art career outside of the city of "the angels." So, in 2004 he sold his little Hollywood house and moved back to his home state of Louisiana. Tim's home is currently in the uptown area of New Orleans. Tim's uses his talents and efforts (in visual promotion) to shine light onto the following non-profit organizations that he believes in the efforts of: Americaswetland.com - MakeItRightNOLA.com -&- StayLocal.org.
Tim's current project is a series of painting translated to posters featuring musical stars of Louisiana (NOLA HEROs)
