Thorneater Comics, West Hurley, NY
Seriously, how cool is Will? Remember last year when he did $1 portraits at Hullabaloo? While we hate to disappoint you, we’re going to try to let you down easy…Will is most likely going to be out of the country (because his work is a huge deal in France now!) during Hullabaloo, so no $1 portraits this year (sad face)….However, he’s got a buddy covering his table so that you can get his drawings, books, t-shirts, and other merch at Hullabaloo anyway (we only had to beg a little; luckily, he’s a super nice guy.) If you don’t know Will, he’s a local illustrator whose comics appears weekly in The Woodstock Times and The Saugerties Times. Then he binds them up (often by hand!) when the series is done, and sells them as books or limited edition boxed sets. He’ll also have his illustrations, t-shirts, and other products, including prints of that amazing map of the Catskills that he did for Almanac recently. His work is eerily charming, full of secrets and surprises, mythical magical woodland creatures, and the people who stumble upon them (usually when they’re most in need of guidance). His work is whimsical but hip, delightful and intriguing, insightful and endearing… We can’t wait to pick out a few more prints for ourselves! This is Will’s second Hullabaloo and we bet you can’t wait to see him again!
