William Pickles

The son of a British travel writer, William Pickles was raised in the far-east, along the pacific rim, where he was surrounded by a dichotomy of technological wonders and deep mythological cultures.

He began his career in Artificial Intelligence before moving into Film & Visual Effects, where he spent many years studying the science of optics, which is perhaps inferred from his intricate and emotive illustrations depicting whimsical scenes.

His drawings are ink on paper, allowing for little modification during their construction. William believes this methodology results in an honest drawing, and allows the picture to practically create itself.

He is always looking to take his art in new directions, and has experimented with animation in music videos, and stereoscopic 3D.
