Hello All.

Also Durning This Time I Was Proud To Do A Workshop In A Middle School In Suffolk For World Book Day. This Involved Me Showing My Work And Them To Think About Books And Where They Would Like To Be Durning The Day Reading A book.I think And Hope They Liked My Art And Loved Giving Out Autographs.

23. Feature In Business Boom

Pleased to say i have had a feature in a online magazine this week for Business Boom Collective, a online magazine in which showcases and promote the best emerging creative students, graduates, freelancers and businesses from the UK and beyond.
Do have a look at the marvelous work in Business Boom

             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!”
