Despite spending his youth as a farm boy in rural Missouri, Tyler Galloway managed to find his way into skateboarding in the ‘80s, which quickly led to the world of punk rock and hardcore.
A combined love of design, punk rock, skating, and later politics and activism, continued into college and beyond with Tyler’s graphic and musical involvement in the Springfield Missouri and Lawrence/KC punk and hardcore scenes. By memory, he has at least 17 release packages under his belt, along with a host of flyers, patches, lyric sheets, and other music-related paraphernalia.
Unable to compete musically with Ian MacKaye or Henry Rollins, Tyler eventually settled on a full-time teaching gig and is now the chair of the graphic design department at the Kansas City Art Institute.
