Ep.18: Why you can learn much more by focusing on specific art topics with Tomasz Mro

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Sep 28, 2017 •  Interviews

Tomasz Mrozkiewicz, also known as Tomasz Mro is a 20-year-old, Polish illustrator currently living in the United Kingdom.

My passion for art started with drawing nothing but dinosaurs (you gotta start somewhere!). Over the years, I grew a strong affinity for watercolors and in addition I also work in pencil, pens, acrylic, inks and digitally in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. My works are highly influenced by graphic design, which I studied for 2 years at college.

In 2016 Tomasz decided to drop out of his art course and continue the art journey by himself. As a freelancer, he creates personal works which you can find on his social sites and purchase in his shop.
