about me

I'm a freelance illustrator & fine artist living and working in Washington. If you want to keep an eye on my art, I post regularly on Instagram and Facebook.

about my art

My art is defined by its darkness, whimsy, and emphasis on characters and storytelling. My illustration work has found itself in books, magazines, advertising, and animation, but is at home anywhere there is a story to be told. My current personal project is an illustrated playing card deck based on the deadly sins & heavenly virtues called Reign of Sin - a follow-up to my last deck, Wicked Kingdom, which launched on Kickstarter in 2016.


If you'd like to discuss a project, I can be reached by email at wbeckert@gmail.com.


Want to help my latest playing card deck see the light of day? Supporters on Patreon get bonus perks like in-depth process tutorials (check out a sample HERE) and early access to new content.


I get a lot of emails from students requesting lengthy interviews for college assignments. While I don't do student interviews anymore (sorry!) there are a number of interviews available online where I discuss career, process, and the ins and outs of illustration. I've compiled a list of available interview content below.
