PROFILE Creative and Innovative – Able to take creative ideas from concept to execution with a diversity of materials. Translate conceptualized ideas into finished product. Highly innovative thinker in creative problem solving and design challenges. Skilled abilities include: Technical Illustrator Patent Illustrator Conceptual Artist / Animator (2D & 3D) Toy / Game Designer Sculptor Paper Model Designer Graphic Designer Toy Prototyper Prototype Moldmaker Illustrator Cartoonist Litigation Artist Bill grew up drawing. All the time. He started his college education in the times BC (before computers) and was there when the first Mac 128s came out. He immediately took to the new technology and foresaw the coming of a time where hand lettering and mechanical color separation would become optional knowledge - relegated to a fine art as opposed to a necessary evil, allowing the artist to be freed up to be more creative and stretch the bounds of their imagination. In the last 25+ years, he has worked for corporations such as Steelcase, where he was a Technical Illustrator plying the wonders of Adobe Illustrator to assembly directions. He has created book covers, art for children's books, conceptual art for movie pitches, toy and game design utilizing Photoshop and Illustrator. Most recently, he has been designing his own line of paper model kits utilizing 3D software and the two aforementioned pieces of software in conjunction.
