Erica Williams draws things, enjoys tea, and hates talking about herself in the third person. She also is obsessed with cats, sugar gliders, and all things generally considered cute. But you aren’t here to hear about how much she loves cute things. You are here because of the drawing stuff part. Well here is a little bit of info about her.
I am an illustrator currently living and working in Minneapolis, MN but am originally from Colorado Springs, CO. I’m known for intricate and detailed illustrations of flora and fauna as well as custom typography and screen printed posters. I enjoy nature and seeing the world around me, smelling leaves, laying in grass, and listening to the wind. In addition to my kitty friends at home I make serious attempts at befriending wild animals I meet, although it makes me very sad it doesn’t always work out. In addition to loving nature and animals I am also heavily influenced by history, fiber arts, tattoo culture, folklore, fables, and mythology.
I attended Kansas City Art Institute for a while before moving to Minneapolis, and became a freelance illustrator in 2012. Since then I have created posters, album art, t-shirts, identity, print advertisements, visual identities, and various merchandise for a variety of clients and industries. I love opportunities to work in new industries so please don’t hesitate to contact me even if you aren’t sure I “do that kind of work.”
