Hi I’m Adam Ming

I started writing this newsletter when I was at the threshold of becoming an illustrator.

What is Adam’s Notes?

I write about my illustration journey into the children’s publishing industry. Things I wish I knew when I was trying to break-in. And the things I learn every day as I work on my first books with top publishers.

What you will get?

Pile of books featuring: things are what you make of them, project123, show your work, 7 habits, bird by bird, create your own universe
If the newsletter was a book, it will fit nicely amongst the books in this image.

📝 In daily newsletter you will get one short piece of creative advice.

And if you sign up for ‘Extra’ you will also get:

⚡️A daily sketchbook prompt

📰 A weekly roundup with a few additional thoughts

🎟 A behind the scenes peek from my practice and upcoming projects

The Newsletter will be sent to your inbox, and if you subscribe you’ll also be able to access the website which features the archives as well as longer essays on the craft.
