Ben Newman

Ben Newman has developed a distinct aesthetic over the years; a contemporary fusion of bold shapes, bright colours and playful characters which has been described as 'bauhaus fuzzy felt.' He has produced work for a large range of clients, including the Tate Modern, New York Times, BBC Radio 4, Apple and The New Yorker. His practice extends outside of commercial work into worldwide exhibitions, paintings and three dimensional collaborations.

He spends the majority of his time collaborating on the Professor Astro Cat children's non-fiction books with his longtime friend and scientist, Dr Dominic Walliman, which are published by Flying Eye Books and have been translated into over 25 other languages.

His first picture book was 'BOO!' published by Flying Eye books. His other picture books, 'SNIP SNAP!' and 'RUMBLE TUMBLE!', play with onomatopoeia sounds and were inspired by his young sons. These two titles are published by MacMillan Kids.

Concurrent to working as a freelance illustrator, Newman lectures on illustration at various universities and conferences in the UK and Europe.
