Ted Dewan      

Author/Illustrator, Creator of "Bing" (hit BBC TV series), maker, mischieveer

Ted Dewan is an internationally acclaimed award-winning Anglo/American author/illustrator and artist. He is best known as creator of the Emmy-Award-winning animated television series Bing currently screening in over 40 countries featuring the voice of Oscar-winner Mark Rylance. His work ranges from best-selling picture books to large-scale steampunk exhibition pieces and fiery public art installations. He spearheaded an unlikely road safety campaign that led to the creation of Britain’s only “Do-It-Yourself Street” where residents built their own imaginative shared-space road installation. All his work centers around the theme of celebrating the precious gift of young people’s imagination, and how adults can apply theirs to work and life. Dewan trained as an engineer at Brown University, graduated in 1983, and taught physics at the prestigious Milton Academy in Boston from 1983-1988, developing a new physics curriculum, before moving to London. He lives in Oxford with author/illustrator Helen Cooper, and their daughter, Pandora. He is currently developing three new animated television projects, and writing a YA novel based on one of his exhibitions.
