Walmsley Does Willie

WillieAdamW

My good friend Adam Walmsley, from Cabot, Pennsylvania, did a bang-up job on artwork for Willie Nelson: A Graphic History. A fellow Kubert School classmate and graduate, Adam also took over my staff artist job at Archie Comics after I left – So we have lots of shared experiences and training. Before this year’s obvious world events, he ran a successful business caricaturing at various events. Also, he’s recently been doing lots of private commissions for art lovers of all kind. So, knowing that he’s been making beautiful watercolor realist art, I thought his work would be a great addition to the Willie project. You’ll see his illustrations in the book at every chapter break, as well as the title page ( where you’ll see a peek of the art above ), and the introductory sequential pages. I was lucky that Adam was available and willing to contribute to the project – as it certainly classed it up.

See more of his work here and here, where he shares lots of process posts and behind the scenes info on his work.

Be sure to preorder Willie Nelson: A Graphic History – available this September!
