About me

Hi! I’m Mya Mitchell. I have loved making my own characters since I was a kid using felt markers on my living room floor to create my own worlds.

My work on the Children’s Book Illustration course is a continuation of the imaginative practice I have been in love with for so many years. My work always falls back to creatures, monsters and animals, drawn with harsh lines, bright colours and lots of textures compiled and drawn digitally.

My favourite areas to work in are character design, concept art, product design and anywhere and everywhere I can stick my funky little dudes!

This year, my work has centred around interactivity through language, games and activities included in my three book projects. As such, I have created stickers, pop-ups, pop-out models to explore this genre as well as many pieces of exploratory character art and developments.
