About Space Nick’s Illustrator
Bill’s desire to illustrate children’s books reached its peaked after meeting the late Maurice Sendak (Where The Wild Things Are) while Mr. Sendak was on a tour through ABC-TV’s Graphics Department in New York City. As politely as Bill could, he shoved his sketchbook into Mr. Sendak’s hands and asked his opinion and professional advice. Mr. Sendak was very generous with his time and his advice. “If you want to be successful,” Mr. Sendak said, “you have to be dedicated, work very hard and be prepared to sacrifice your free time for your artwork.” Mr. Sendak was right.
