Tyler Feder is an artist whose work explores Big Feelings, feminism, and pop culture.
She illustrated Unladylike: A Field Guide to Smashing the Patriarchy and Claiming Your Space (Ten Speed) by Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin and is currently illustrating her first solo book, Dancing at the Pity Party (Dial), a graphic memoir about the premature death of her super cool mom. Selected freelance clients include Netflix, Comedy Central, and ESPN. Tyler also runs Roaring Softly, where she sells prints and merchandise featuring her illustrations.
Tyler graduated from Northwestern University in 2011 with a B.A. in Radio/TV/Film and a certificate in Creative Writing for the Media. She completed the Writing Program at the Second City Training Center in 2013.
When she is not making art, Tyler enjoys milky coffee, jigsaw puzzles, and staring emo-ly into Lake Michigan. She currently lives and works out of a teeny apartment in Chicago with her beloved cat son, Mitzvah Bear.
Tyler's favorite color is pink (obviously).
