Will has been getting out to Lincoln, MA this early summer to draw from a trio of these beauties who are being boarded out there. I'm looking forward to seeing what results, but in the meantime... a few pictures of the great beasts themselves, and a note:
"Fascinating to see how the hoof is still evident, even with all the fur disguising things. Also fascinated with the seemingly completely arbitrary splotches of black and white. They like both apples and carrots, but get a little pushy about it. wr"
Will has been in Germany, but he's back, and has resumed work on the photography archive.
This week, five new images. The animal ones are excellent (the warthog head is my favorite), but--this week, two figure drawings.
We have been attempting to track down images of Will's Elaine series, from the early 70s. If anyone checking through here happens to be someone who has one or more of those hanging on their walls--would it be possible for you to forward us a best-quality image of your drawing? It would be greatly appreciated from this end.
On another note, there are some issues with the "updated" templates that make up these pages. While I'm getting that sorted, I'll be putting all this week's fresh images on this blog page, so they'll be easy to see/locate.
Will has started to refurbish the beloved Reimann rhinoceros. This ears were chewed down by the last Reimann puppy, and it has been languishing in his shop for some years awaiting repair.
The ears are now fixed. Other detail work proceeds. The pictures are up on a new page, "Rhinoceros."
Will just returned from the San Diego Crew Classic, which he attends every year for the dual purpose of rowing and visiting the San Diego Zoo.
He reports: "1 and ½ drawings." And some decent racing.
That's artist-code for "One that I'm satisfied with, and one that has some good passages, but does not overall cohere."
Needless to say, I am currently harrying him to get a picture of at least the "1," because I, twelve thousand miles away, would like to see it. Anyone else? *g*
On the Radnor Township page, a Google Map which shows these two monumental scupltures by Will has been added.
The technology is not perfect (the artworks do not have street addresses, so only the Griffin is visible on the first view of the map.
Still, it's pretty cool.
Streamlining this process...

It has been a pleasure for Will and Katya both, to receive the many kind comments that have welcomed the new pages. Thank you to all!
We are still working out how to use this page/blog. So far, so good.
Currently Will is responding to messages as he sees them, and Katya is combing through afterwards to tidy up. Comments may disappear after Will or Katya has had contact with a poster directly.
To avoid spam, email addresses have not been published on this site, but we will attempt to respond to all messages we receive, privately or publicly, as appropriate.
Enjoy the mildly comical "pushmi-pullyu" effect as Katya and Will sort out who responds to what, and where? (Katya's hope is that her role in technical support will become less visible as Will familiarizes himself with the technology)
Will is a sculptor and draftsman, living and working in Cambridge, MA.
If you have any interest in owning an artwork by Will, feel welcome to put in a preliminary query to Katya.
Artwork depicted on this site that is not given a citation may be available, though the primary purpose of this site is not as a sales center. Many singular items are in the family or private collections and NFS.
Will continues to accept commissions, as time permits.
