Welcome Our New Artist-In-Residence: Nicholas Miller

Artist Promotion Through Video

They applied. They were awesome. They became Redbubble Artists-in-Residence.

5 artists are moving into Redbubble’s Melbourne and San Francisco offices to work on specialized creative projects lasting 3 to 6 months. And to have a bunch of fun.

Nicholas Miller is a videographer, photographer, producer, artist, and all around creative jack of all trades. He’s from Australia and will be working out of the Melbourne office.

Along with studying the Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media at RMIT, he created a Youtube series promoting independant artists, and also designs tattoos for charity.

He is passionate about creating digital content, and is very enthusiastic about contributing to the Redbubble community.

1. Describe your work in 7 words or less.

Precision & detail ruined with chaos and splatter.

2. Tell us about the project you will be working on while in the RB residency program?

I will be making a YouTube/Facebook video series aimed at promoting and highlighting unique, awesome and interesting artists who post their art on RedBubble. I’ll be talking about why each artist’s work is unique, what I like the most about it and any interesting facts or methods involved in their artistic journey. And I’ll of course be making the show light hearted and fun to watch!

Furthermore, I’ll also be working on my own personal art projects during my time at RedBubble. I’ll be continuing to draw tattoo designs for charity and collaborating with an artist from each country in the world on my YouTube channel, ImportAutumn.

3. Name a fear of yours.

I fear waking up in an alternate reality where shoes don’t exist and all the floors are covered in lego. Also, I’m not big on aeroplanes.

4. What is something most people don’t know about you?

When I was a child I was really into Pokemon. But the thing is, I also went to a Catholic Primary School. So I put 2 and 2 together and decided every night that I would pray for God to turn all animals into Pokemon. I couldn’t understand why God wouldn’t turn a pigeon into a Pidgey; it didn’t seem like a big deal to me at the time.

5. If you could go back in time, what would you tell your younger artist self?

I never liked art class when I was growing up. I thought it was really boring learning about Picasso and Van Gogh which meant I never paid attention in class and dropped the entire subject. I never really learnt how to use acrylic paints for this reason and for a long time I was sort of stuck only using pens to create art until I convinced myself to try watercolours. So I’d probably tell myself to suffer through the art history a little more.

The best way to keep up with Nicholas’ latest creations and projects, is by following him on Redbubble and Youtube. Also, make sure to sign up for our blog email updates (bottom of this page) and follow Redbubble Create on Instagram to keep up to date with all of the residents.
