Hi I’m Adam Ming,

I’m a Startup co-founder turned picture-book illustrator, clients include Bloomsbury, Harper Collins, Wern & Rook, Anderson Press, Simon & Shuster, Walker Books, and Hardie Grant.

In this Newsletter, I write about how to build a Creative Practice and my ongoing adventures as a picture book illustrator.

What you will get?

10-Minute Artist - 💌 Lecture


A new “10-Minute Artist - 💌 Lecture” will meet you in your inbox, It’s a short email that will instruct you on how to build a creative practice in as little as 10 minutes per session.

If you’re a complete beginner…

This email will open your mind to the practice and pitfalls of making art. My aim is to be beginner-friendly by focusing on the basics. And I’ll focus more on concepts, principles, and insights rather than technical tips.

Advanced creators will know that being advanced, is just being good at the basics, so there’s a lot to be gained for you too!

Why do people subscribe?

People say the notes are: Insightful, Motivating, Inspiring, and Informative.
