About me
William is an illustrator with a strong passion for printmaking, objects and places; most of the time objects in places. Combining knowledge of traditional practises with digital mediums he can create illustrations that look both modern and mature. His artwork frequently addresses sustainability and environmental issues in order to raise awareness of the impact our passion for plastics and consumerism has made on our planet.
