Nathan McCarron "My side hobby really blew up" 🎨
Born in Tasmania, Australia, artist Nathan McCarron has quickly become one of the most prominent pencil artists of his generation having his work praised by millions across the globe.
Self taught, Nathan dropped out of art class in year 8 to follow his passion for acting and drama. After graduating at 18, Nathan moved to Melbourne in search for work as an actor - always sketching and perfecting his pencil art on the side. After modeling for clothing brands like Jack London and starring as leads in Theatre shows and TV Commercials, Nathan was accepted to study at the Film & Television Studio International.
The artwork Nathan produces originally served as a creative outlet, sketching in-between working and auditioning as an actor. By posting his “side hobby” on Instagram, Nathan quickly gained the attention of fans including the subjects he’s drawn like P!nk, Rihanna, Whoopi Goldberg and Dame Enda. However, it wasn’t until Nathan joined the viral app TikTok posting progression videos during Covid Lockdown 2020 that things really took off.
Now with over 24 million views on TikTok and over 400k followers on social platforms, the artwork of Nathan McCarron stands on its own and continues to affirm his reputation as an important figure in the arts.

Symon Lovett "The Symon part of Adam & Symon" 📺
Adam & Symon have been a regular fixture on Aussie television screens since 2015 when they made their debut on ‘Gogglebox’.
The "Symon part" joins us on The Convo…
If Symon wasn’t busy enough he is also a physiotherapist. Symon’s interest in physiotherapy began as a teenager when the harsh truth that his size and general ability would prevent him from having a successful AFL career. He therefore chose an academic alternative.
Symon & George have a great convo surrounding I'm a Celebrity 2021, this years plans PLUS the simple pleasures in life.
