Bill’s first paid illustration was $1.00 from Dave in the lunchroom for a cartoon titled “Micky and Minnie getting busy.” It also earned him his first trip to the principals office. By the time he went to Massachusetts College of Art and Design for Illustration he practiced his pack handling skills by dodging cars, buses, trollies and that one ƒµ¢≤¡≈§ red jeep on the streets of Boston. A career as a footwear designer ensued along with the occasional cartoon drawn for Velo News, Bicycle Guide and Red Kite Prayer. Lately he can be seen driving around in a vintage RV with his wife Sam, their Corgi Bloo and couple dragons.
