Tim Finn teaches drawing, animation, animation history, and comic book storytelling at AIB, the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. He received his MAT in Art Education from a joint program of Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (sMFA). His RISD undergraduate thesis Limboscape, a hand-drawn 35mm cartoon film, has screened at twenty film festivals in the US and Europe. Tim’s most recent film, an abstract meditation on old-fashioned four-color comics printing called CYMoKay, screened at the 2010 Ottawa International Animation Festival, as well as at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston’s 2011 “New England Animators” program. A comic book aficionado, Tim has drawn and published minicomics since grade school. To no one’s surprise, the G.I. Joe parody comic he drew in 7th grade is terrible.

Tim also owns the Somerville, Massachusetts brick and mortar store Hub Comics. At all times Hub carries the full line of new IDW G.I. Joe single issues and in-print G.I. Joe graphic novels.
