Drawing Nature: Jamie Mills

British illustrator Jamie Mills certainly knows the way to a girl’s heart: bears and mountains. Creating intricately detailed landscapes and wildlife creatures with small bursts of primary colour, his work is inspired by L.S Lowry and Brooks Salzwedel. I love the juxtaposition of monochromatic representations of nature with bright geometric shapes. If only the woods looked this good.

Mills is also the co-creator of collaborative project, A Tale to Tell, which fuses storytelling and illustration to produce a multilayered and ever-evolving narrative that uses Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book as its genesis.
