Mill Road Art: Jim Butler

Jim Butler comes from Dublin and has lived in Cambridge since 2007. He leads the MA Illustration & Book Arts at Cambridge School of Art, ARU. The collage drawings here were all made completely on location with sticks, ink and a bag full of different coloured papers.

Last year, The Guardian commissioned him to make a series of drawings in The Flying Pig, while in 2018 he won the World Illustration Award for his book, Blackrock Sequence. His work is held in many public collections including The Tate and The Art Institute of Chicago.
