Timothy Foss (Spaceman Tim) is the founder, CEO, and principal graphic astronaut of the storytelling company, MORE BELIEF. He has spent over 20 years in the visual arts—teaching at the university level, exhibiting in national retail stores, galleries, and museums, and working with local and multi-national organizations to make space for change. In 2010, He received a Masters of Fine Art in Visual Storytelling from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
The unifying principle of all his work is what he calls the Story of Space (hence the nickname). He considers inner and outer space to be vast and infinite. Providing others with blank visual space to make change, counteracts the widely held sensibility that the world is encroaching on us, and provides spacial-justice to those who have been squeezed out.
To that end, he currently focuses on live-event illustration called Graphic Recording. He is training new practitioners, and expanding the scope of MORE BELIEF to include other kinds of purpose-driven-improvisation. He is also co-producing a podcast called Creatures of Earth about how we can assist our own evolution, and whether we should.
He lives in Minneapolis with his wife, their five-year old boy (who believes all sketchbooks are flip charts), and their two-year old girl (who paints often, mainly on her hands, and mostly purple).
