Jon Twingley is a frequent contributor to NDSU magazine, and seemed the perfect fit for an issue celebrating our connections. Like Carson Wentz, Twingley grew up in Bismarck, North Dakota, and is a proud Century High School graduate. He too has made it to the big city, a sought-after illustrator based in New York City. His work appears regularly in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the Chronicle of Higher Education, the Atlantic and the New Republic, among others. He earned a master of fine arts degree in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1998. And he has another connection with Carson Wentz. Since 2007, he’s been a senior lecturer at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
