Bill has been drawing since as long as his hand could grasp a crayon. Art and design has always been a part of him. His desire to illustrate comic books led him to The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Arts in Dover, New Jersey.
During his time at the school, he paid his bills by designing and building sets in several theaters across northern New Jersey. Productions included Phantom of the Opera, Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?, Young Frankenstein, Dracula, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Baby, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Miracle on 34th Street, Chess and West Side Story.
His career path taking a hard left into the action-figure and collectible statue industry, Bill has been a professional commercial sculptor since the age of twenty-two. Some of the clients he has sculpted for include Hasbro, Mattel, Toy Biz, Diamond Select Toys and McFarlane Toys on projects such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Sesame Street, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, Batman, X-Men, Halo, Snoop Dogg, G.I. Joe and The Pink Panther. All the while (time permitting) writing and illustrating his comic book that he hopes will soon see print.
With Bill’s training in the storyboard qualities of the comic book art form, his knowledge of theatre set design and his professional discipline as a commercial artist, director Pieter Gaspersz and producer Sabrina Gennarino believed Bill would bring a fresh perspective in designing their production, “After.” Not one to turn down a challenge, Bill accepted their offer.
