Bill enjoys doing illustrations of animal characters in fictional stories. Some examples are 'Share Bear' and 'Beth and the Sloth'. He often adds interesting visual sub-plots in his illustrations to give extra meaning to the text.
Bill now lives in Melbourne, Australia with his family. When he is not working, he enjoys walking, running and music.
