My name is Adam Parslow and I am a creative artist who loves to work in digital and traditional drawing methods. I am a graduate from The London College of Fashion where I studied Fashion Illustration (BA Hons). It was a wonderful experience where I have learnt how to undertake professional projects, hewn my craft, collaborate with other artists in other professions (especially photographers) and the importance of continually learning.
During my time at The London College of Fashion I have discovered that even though I love fashion illustration it is not where I want to head for my future. What I have fell in love with is the characters that I have created during my studies. Fashion Illustration was all about the story for me of the individual. I feel that the fashion must be highly valued when it comes to character design. What a character is wearing will communicate straight away who they are and also embed their individuality into the audience’s mind. That’s the takeaway I want to leave with my characters.
I want to move into film, animation and concept art moving forward in my career as storytelling is something I love. Looking at working with such studios as Disney Pixar and Marvel as a dream goal for me. However for now it is all about experimenting, growing as an artist and getting better at what I can produce. Taking all the knowledge I can get from industry. I am young, hungry and ready to start.
About me personally?
I do find a good way to describe myself is that I am a creative. I look like an artist and its because its who I am. I have characteristics of nerdiness but also can dance, a strange combination I would say and hopefully paints a good picture for you of myself. I love gaming, watching movies that are fantasy and sci-fi based but ultimately if the story is strong, I am all about it. For example, my favourite film is ‘The Green Book’. A beautiful story of two individuals who couldn’t be more different forging a strong relationship together which benefits each of them. I certainly love sports as well as a strong supporter of Arsenal FC. Exercising and my health is something I care about taking care of also. Poor health leads to me not being able to do what I love in life.
I highly value humour in life, I believe we need to laugh about things and I certainly don’t take myself seriously so I’m trying to inject this into my work. I love socialising with people, I think people are great and can make life incredible. I need that connection in my life to those who I share time with. If you value humour as much as me then we will get along just fine.
My great love is music. I love music! There is something about the art of music that is very special to me. I believe it’s because I am such a visual heavy person that when I am being entertained through the form of audio and sound it’s a pleasure that feeds my ability to dance. It’s another way for me to work and express myself and have fun. I create my own music as a way of therapy and relaxation.
