Freelance Work

Toys, Gifts, and Jewelry

 
1980-present d.b.a. Wes and Willy Freelance Co.

Handpainting prototypes, product design, presentation illustration, and production handpainting for toys, gifts and jewelry.

My toy design work relates to those parts that will be spray painted or printed in production. Because I am a designer and a handpainter with exceptional technique (sharp edges and virtually no brush strokes), and excellent color matching skills, I am able to design directly on castings or vinyl skins with paint. The result is a first draft design that is used for presentations and graphics models. I am able to base spray models and do free-spray deco. I work well with other designers, interpreting drawings and other reference materials.
