Mimi Leung has been on the move for the past few years. The Melbourne-based illustrator used to call London her home before disappearing off to the outback to teach drawing to kids. We missed her while she was gone as we were denied the brightly coloured, mischievous characters that Mimi’s famous for, in our newspapers, magazines and posters.
But forget all that time in the wilderness, Mimi’s back in the urban sprawl and producing new commercial work for us all to enjoy. As is customary with an artistic rebirth, she’s also just launched a new website that showcases the cream of her back catalogue and a wealth of updates from her creative endeavours in 2012. It’s good to have you back Mimi.
