'My course helped me become a freelance illustrator and muralist.'
After attending several open days, Will realised the BA (Hons) Illustration course at Sheffield Hallam was the most suited to him. The course set Will up with the creative and artistic skills he needed to become a freelance illustrator and muralist based in Sheffield. Going by the name of Willustration, his recognisable artwork is bringing popular venues to life across Sheffield.
‘I feel like Hallam really prepared me for being a creative professional by really encouraging me to reference different things and to experiment with different mediums.’
‘I got the opportunity to work with an architect company to illustrate a comic book. So it got you a foot into the door of a lot of things that are slightly out of your reach while you’re in that phase of life.’
‘I love the fact that I wake up every day and I’m working in an industry that I’m really passionate about and not doing anything that I don’t want to do.’
