Welcome to Billistration

Hi, I'm Billy. I create work inspired by humans (Duuhhhh). Brock Thomas Boslem and I interview creatives (aka humans) on my pordcast the Billetin.

The podcast is a live recording. I interview artists about what inspires them, we discuss their work and I then reveal a piece I have created in turn inspired by them.
