who is bywilliamfairbrother ?

william fairbrother is a manchester based digital illustrator inspired by personal relationships, experiences and all things associated with gratefulness. 
bound together with a minimalistic aesthetic, with hints of japanese embellishments, bywilliamfairbrother aims to create warmly artwork that feels comfort, almost like nostalgia. 
commissions and self directed illustrations make up most of the bywf portfolio, although there is also some branding and more commercial work in there. something william wants to do more of (thats me, im william. i want to do commercial)
aligning with the tenderness of his work, william uses personal enjoyments for creative direction, such as miyazaki’s theory of ‘ma’- the calm and homely qualities of emptiness. 
(lots of white space please. or stars. theyre good too)
