Wil Overton

Wil Overton

Wil Overton was born in England sometime in the 1960s in, what was then called a ‘New Town’, in Harlow, Essex. He grew up there in the heady ‘70s, dreaming of drawing superheroes for Marvel, but eventually getting sidetracked into graphic design at college and ending up in advertising. He would probably still be there, were it not for the rise of the video game and Japanese-style animation. From designing and illustrating for the UK’s first newsstand anime magazine Wil moved onto video games mags in the ‘90s and eventually into games development. His style (which he likes to describe as ‘silly pictures’) hasn’t changed, so much as evolved over the years as he’s gotten better and absorbed more and more influences. He loves the flexibility technology has given him and he‘s now transitioned from traditional media to an all-digital workflow. Now, Wil says he‘s supposedly all grown up and lives in leafy Warwickshire with his wife, son, five (yes, five) rescue pussycats and far too many toys and comics (which are, obviously, for research purposes only). He’d still quite like it to draw Spider-Man at some point. View Full Bio
