Tim van de Vall has been drawing and writing comic strips almost his entire life. He was born in 1987 in the Netherlands. He moved to the USA when he was four. He graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2010.
After spending a short while working as an illustrator for an ad agency in Atlanta, Tim started his own small online business, Tim’s Printables, a website providing educational illustrations and materials for students, parents and teachers.
Around 2014 Tim started thinking about a comic strip about a hunter-gatherer robot. After several iterations, in 2016 he started the comic strip Ergo.
