Tom Cole

Tom grew up in Brighton, where his interest in drawing took hold. He originally thought he’d be an architect but wasn't very good at maths, so went to study illustration instead. After graduating he made ‘Space Race’, a concertina book for Nobrow, which helped kick things off. Tom has a number of picture books published including ‘WALL’ and ‘The Red Prince’ with Templar Publishing and ‘Destination Space’ with Wide Eyed Editions. He's also illustrated many book covers and completed successful commercial projects for London advertising agencies.

Tom lives and works in London and shares a studio with some other Blink folk. He finds inspiration in painting, photography, travel and space.
