Jess Pauwels

I’m a Brussels based illustrator.

I got my degree in Illustration and have since been working as a freelance in my home studio.

As a “mixed techniques” enthusiast, I love to switch between pencils and graphic tablet to create colourful illustrations.

I published several children books in France and Belgium and also worked as a graphic designer for different clients (from music labels to dance companies).


“Pauwels’ digital forest scenes full of tiny onlookers such as bees, spiders, and worms complement Gallaher’s witty wordplay…A cracking whooooo-dunit.” — Kirkus Reviews for ‘Whobert Whoever, Owl Detective’
