About Bill Hope
Bill Hope is a commercial Illustrator living and working in Sydney.
Having studied at the National Art School, The College of Fine Arts and the Julian Ashton School Bill has spent the past four years working full time in the industry. Starting out with the Drawing Book Studios Bill has worked in storyboards, editorial, live drawing, concept design and traditional practice.
His work combines a traditional approach to hand drawn illustration with an affinity for the digital sphere and the array of tools it provides. This approach allows the creation of drawings that range from elaborate compositions of a fantastical nature to fast paced sketches of wit and facility.
With clients ranging from CBA to McDonalds, Redcross and the NBN, Bill’s work has been of a broad scope and scale. He has held three solo exhibitions of his work, published under the New Frontier imprint and is the recipient of national (Julian Ashton) and international (High Art) prizes.
