Spacing Magazine




It's finally out! About three months ago I emailed the art director of Spacing Magazine, a local magazine about Toronto urban issues, about my café illustrations. He loved them and asked if he could feature them in this Quarter's spring issue. Of course I said yes and the rest is history, as the saying goes!

However, as a newbie to the paid illustration world, the 3 months leading up to today, when I finally saw my drawings in print, I was wracked with paranoia. I emailed the AD a few times asking where I stood with it over the last three months and he never replied. I of course thought they regretted the decision of putting my illustrations in this issue and this was their way of saying, "beat it". Well the paranoia was vanquished today when I saw them finally in print.

I'm pretty stoked right now.

Wow, Wil, congratulations! I hope tons of people discover your wonderful drawings - if you got it flaunt it as they say! Well deserved recognition! (The spread looks fantastic btw!)

Whoop! *sending you a high five* Way to go, Wil! These have really been a favorite of mine! So now, show the restaurant owners how their shops are in the magazine and then ask them if they would like to buy prints or the originals!! Time to bank it!

Felicity-- thank you. I'm hoping it'll lead to a few more commissions (finger's crossed!)

Raena-- thanks. High five received (geez, you didn't have to slap so hard! ;-) ) Unfortunately all three drawings on the right have been sold already, but I do have few more new ones, as you already know.
