Thought i post some of the work that i have been up this week .
Well ,last week was the first week of my new one year project (yes ,another one!!), in which i do Hopefully SIX children's Picture books
from the beginning to the end.
I started last week on my new blog (press here) ,it was hard to start as i had so many ideas and it does seem that i do work better when im on a project.
I hope you like the drawings and the images ,about a story about a fly,yes it was going to be a bear or moria or the other things that i draw but i wanted to start off with a new idea,so code named (Superfly) i started the idea and writing the story in 32 pages.
The one year project that i am doing from my little studio.Why another project after the drawing a day project
,it does seem i can work better when i have a project.
So what is this project that i hope that you will like?
Well its a one year project in which i hope we do 6 or more children's pictures books for the first drawings to a book,and maybe just maybe one of the big publishing houses will see it ?,i do plan to send them off.
As to my background i have been studying art for a long time and had points off to be a postman and other jobs ,i did a graphic design course (before computers!!!),a Fine art BA (Hons) and a MA in children's books in which i still have to finish.

Artist & Illustrator Adrian Mills
Freelance artist and illustrator Adrian Mills is our featured creative this afternoon. Currently based in Suffolk, Adrian studied for a BA Hons in Fine Art, followed by an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (ARU). With an obvious passion for drawing, Adrian enjoys documenting everyday life in illustrative form, whether that be at home, on the tube or down the market – here we showcase some of his recent work.
“I cant remember when I first started drawing, I think it must have been when everyone else was learning to write; maybe it was as a result of too much 70s television! My style has changed over the years and at the moment, it consists of pen and ink drawings with a vibrant mix of colour.”
“I enjoy creating fun, characterful and contemporary illustrations with an aim to appeal to both children and adults. I recently worked on a one-year project, throughout which I did a drawing a day of things that I saw on my travels; this project taught me a lot and in fact made me see life differently. I have always been interested in seeing everyday things and linking them together artistically.”
“Some of these images were shown in a online magazine (Mouth London
) – from the project into the tube life series. I am just about to set up another year-round project based on children’s book illustration.”
“I have met so many wonderful artists on my travels so far and can’t wait to see how my own work develops in the future!”
