Tyler Feder is a full-time illustrator based in Chicago. She graduated from Northwestern University in 2011 with a BA in Radio, Television, & Film (RTVF if you’re in the know) and a certificate in Creative Writing for the Media. She further honed her comedic skillz at the Second City Training Center, where she graduated from the writing program and produced two shows with her sketch group, The Blatant Plagiarists.


In 2012, bored to tears with her post-college data entry job, Tyler began posting her artwork online. Within 5 years, she grew her illustration company, Roaring Softly, into a recognizable brand with a mix of witty pop culture art and intersectional feminist pieces. 

Tyler is currently writing and illustrating her first solo work, a graphic memoir about her mom's death called Dancing at the Pity Party as well as illustrating Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin’s highly-anticipated book Unladylike: A Field Guide to Smashing the Patriarchy and Claiming Your Space.  In the past, Tyler has illustrated for Netflix, Comedy Central, and ESPN, and her art has been featured in Glamour Magazine, Buzzfeed, and, most importantly, Mindy Kaling’s instagram account. When she’s not busy illustrating, she enjoys jigsaw puzzles, milky coffee, and singing made-up songs to her cat.
