Bill Otersen


a mountain biking bear pauses to look back.


Bill Otersen: Unique motion filled adventurous illustration: My applied art education began with my own “Peanuts” style cartoon strip at age 10, I have studied cartooning and its history, abstraction in nature, sketching, the human figure, animal anatomy, animation, hand lettering, Ink rendering, art history, layout, graphic design, and production techniques. I have rendered over a thousand cartoon strips for print, made hundreds of illustrations and filled dozens of sketch books with drawings from life, imagined art and designs conceived. As an artist that provides images in digital formats for print and web, I still believe in the thumbnail sketch. I will then render on bristle board in the real world or I scan and design in vector and pixel with a computer. I have learned these software programs: Freehand, Painter, GoLive, Illustrator, Photoshop, Pagemaker, Quark and Mac operating systems.
