Artist Series

Tyler Lederer

Growing up with his family in Algonquin, Illinois, Tyler always wanted to be an illustrator. At a young age, he gravitated towards super heroes, wanting to be just like them and inspire good in people. As he grew older, his love for super heroes led him from early morning cartoon shows to comic books... read more

He never asked his parents for an entire series of comics in order to follow the story; instead he wanted the one comic book with the “coolest” art on the cover.

Throughout high school he took as many art classes as possible; creating art with keeping the same theme of helpful heroes, and villains who stood in the way. Some classmates thought it a little strange that he was STILL watching super hero cartoons and animated movies, but this is when Tyler realized that he really wanted to use pictures to tell a story.

Tyler is currently attending college, working on a degree in Illustration with a focus on children’s books, and continues to work as an in-house Tervis artist, as he has since 2011. He and his family enjoy visiting local parks, reading together and generally having fun where they reside in Venice, Florida.
