An experienced illustrator, digital artist and animator.

“My work has appeared in books, magazines, online and TV.”

My name is Jason Venus, I am the overseer of creativity and fun stuff here at Drawmill (sometimes also know as Dailytoon).

I have been drawing cartoons since I was first able to hold a pen. My school books were filled with little doodles and animations and I draw almost every day.

I started my working life as a commercial photographer, photographing everything form Helicopters, through to food, people and wildlife.  This taught me the importance of composition and lighting which has helped shape the way I approach video animations.

With the birth of the internet and home computing, I become more and more involved with Digital art using Photoshop and photograph manipulation.

Drawmill was created to feed my passion of digital illustration, art and animation. I have had the pleasure of working for companies big and small on various size projects. I have worked with Google on internal educational videos, with Subway Foods, the RSPB and more.

When I can I update my Youtube channel, ‘Dailytoon‘ with my own fun little projects, and have a small T-Shirt shop for merchandise with my artwork.
