Picture Perfect

Bill Hope's expansive imagery

On July 10, 2014

Bill Hope’s need to fill a blank space with detail has been likened to a ‘nervous twitch’ and his process as being able to ‘open a valve in the back of my head and let out whatever is rattling around in there’.

Bill Hope is certainly one of a kind! Bill has a penchant for meticulous detail, expansive imagery and creating layers of narrative.
Bill's illustrations are from Benji the Buccaneer (written by Craig Cormick)
