Hi I’m Adam Ming

I’m a Malaysian picture-book illustrator, with upcoming books to be published by Bloomsbury, Harper Collins, Wern & Rook, Anderson Press & Hardie Grant. I live in Kuala Lumpur with my lovely wife and daughter.

What is Adam’s Notes?

I write about The Creative Process as I 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?

In ‘Adam’s Notes’ I write daily short notes about Creative Practice and my day job of being a freelance illustrator specializing in picturebooks.

There is also a weekly option called “Momentum Mondays” where share a bunch of things to give you a headstart for your creative week.

Why do people subscribe?

The people who read Adam’s Notes are curious about the day-to-day life of a working illustrator. They want to know how to break in and how to keep going in the industry.

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

They also like that they are short :)

In each Letter I aim to package gems 💎 that you might use as a next step for your creative practice.
