Jack Tongeman

Jack studied Illustration at Falmouth University before returning to London where he grew up. He always knew he wanted to write and illustrate stories but soon found a love for picture books. Though working digitally, Jack enjoys making textures to scan in and use in his work, with a focus on bold, bright colours and energetic linework.

As well as picturebooks, Jack brings his passion for drawing into schools where he runs educational theatre workshops. This involves fast-paced live drawing exercises which keeps him on his toes.

Jack was shortlisted for the Templar Book Prize, as well as featured by the dPICTUS Unpublished Picturebook Showcase.
