University of West London Illustration Graduate Daniel Jamie Williams

Daniel Jamie Williams is 22 year old illustrator living in West London recently graduated from The University Of West London, he’s also a member of the @just_us_ Design Collective 2014.

‘Right now I’ve just passed the stressful end stage of ‘university panic’ and long, coffee-filled work sessions. I studied Graphic Design/Illustration at The University Of West London but I definitely found my place in the illustration part. Before that I did an Art & Design foundation course at Northampton University. I suppose that’s where I decided that illustration was for me.’

‘Most of my work before that was inspired by artists such as Dali and Schiele; I used to work mainly with oil paint on canvas but I slowly became more and more interested in the idea of book illustration and narrative pieces. Whilst I’ve been at university I’ve been working on poster design and conceptual illustration. I also like to make my own books/zines – there’s a nice freedom in it.

After I celebrate making it through university alive I plan to keep working at editorial and poster illustration whilst managing my online shop. I intend to keep experimenting; using different media and coming up with new ideas as I do – a new zine is definitely in the planning stage too!’
