Chances are you’ve already seen the work of contemporary illustrator Bill Butcher. From the Wall Street Journal to Fortune, from the Financial Times to The Guardian, with, oh, just a few little publications in between, including How To Spend It, The Economist, Phaidon Books, Business 2.0, Legal Business, McKinsey Global, Brunswick, Cardano, Moet-Hennessy, MacMillan Books, John Wiley books and Die Weltwoche (Suisse), Butcher is about as prolific as it gets.
But this is not just a question of coverage: chances are, you’ve not only seen Butcher’s work, but you remember it too; because every piece is carefully crafted to tell a story, not just sell a product or accompany a text. From sports vignettes to political skits, Butcher’s pieces sit apart from the crowd, thanks to an exquisite eye for detail and a truly distinctive, graphic aesthetic. As well as his published work, Bill has also been commissioned for both public and private portraits and has exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions. Today, Bill lives and works in Clerkenwell, London.
