I like the work of Drew Millward. I liked it even more when I found out Drew is an old school pencil wielding illustrator. None of your modern vector stuff for Drew - just good old pencil, pen and ink.
Drew was born in Coventry but now lives in Leeds. He produces illustration for the music industry as well as poster and t-shirt designs – with recent commissions by Flight of The Conchords, Gallows, Sonic Youth and Mogwai. These have allowed Drew to reach new audiences and attract a wave of new fans to his online galleries which is vital because so far his success has been mainly viral. No agents or P.R. companies here yet Drew’s prints sell out in minutes online. He has exhibited throughout the US, UK, Europe and beyond.
