Coming Home

Posted By on Tue, Aug 8, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Artist Brad McMillan, whose drawings have adorned everything in Memphis from the ceiling of the P&H Café to the editorial pages of the Memphis Business Journal, has moved back to his hometown of Jackson, Tennessee, following the death of his wife, Carolyn.

McMillan, a 1968 graduate of Rhodes College (then called Southwestern at Memphis) first got his start teaching in Jackson, then moved to Memphis in the early 1970s and began illustrating for a number of publications here, including a few pieces for the Flyer’s sister publication, Memphis magazine. In the late 1970s, he moved to Dallas, while continuing to contribute drawings to the MBJ and other clients.

For more about the long and illustrious (pun intended) career of one of this area’s most prolific and recognizable artists, go here.
