William J. Locker is an Illustrator/Musician from Des Moines, IA, specializing in colored pencil drawings of cartoon characters. He has illustrated two children’s books, “A Clue, A Clue and A Letter Too!” by Tracy Drury and most recently, “The Penguin Party: The Adventures of Picky & Slicky” by D.D. Blessing. William has also completed additional hand-drawn projects for various bands’ album art as well as company logos.
Video Games and Cartoons of the 90’s drive his inspiration – the funnier, the better. One of William’s first memories: coming home with a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure, and having to draw it before it was even played with – which continued on for the rest of his childhood.
William J. Locker’s illustrations have a memorable style that showcases heart and personality.
