Bill Houston caught the eye of the Jumbo team with his excellent eye for detail and hilarious caricature illustrations, and it was a no-brainer when it came to asking him to join the Wasgij team and be the man behind the humour in the brand new puzzle releases in June 2013.
After obtaining a B.A. Honours degree in Desgin in 1980, Bill’s illustrations have been published across all forms of media from books, magazines and greetings cards to T-Shirts and mugs. Bill is also a published author and has even produced a design for the FBI…but if we told you anything else about that…. well you get the picture!
Nowadays, most of Bill’s work is produced digitally, except for his live caricature illustrations that always brings in the crowd at parties and trade shows (as it did at the London Toy Fair on Jumbo’s stand). Bill works from his studio in Hertfordshire’s countryside. A perfect location for him, because when he is not busy illustrating he is often out walking with Jack, his little West Highland Terrier. Keep an eye out for Jack in Bill’s puzzle illustrations as the little rascal likes to pop up every now and again!
