Tina Kügler

Tina Kügler (she/her) draws and paints her quirky artwork digitally and works very hard to make it look like she is not using a computer at all. Tina wrote and illustrated Snail and Worm, a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor-winning series about two small friends. She spent many years as a Storyboard Artist for animation studios such as Walt Disney, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros., and is currently a Character Layout Artist on The Simpsons for Fox Television Animation. She also owned a children's bookshop and worked in the youth department of a public library. Tina volunteers with the Boy Scouts of America and has little to no spare time. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, three sons, and a cranky lizard named Jabba.
