Welcome to the second in our new series of posts highlighting tweeting illustrators (we’ll call them “Twillustrators”). Artists who make good use of social media to promote their work. There are many tweeting illustrators, it’s mind boggling, in each of our ongoing series we will hand pick three that stand out from the crowd. As well as being talented visual communicators they all make good use of social media, self initiated projects and blogging to promote themselves and their work. Enjoy…

Jamie Mills - Illustrator

Jamie Mills

Jamie is studying illustration at the university of Gloucestershire and looking to get involved in as many projects as he possibly can. His Twitter account states: “Drawing animals to prevent the apocalypse”.

He says: Currently, my work seems to be about mountains – nature, generally, plays a very big part in my drawings as does geometry. I like quite fine, textured pencil work mixed in with big, simple, colourful shapes which, ideally would be screen printed. And bears. I really like bears.
