Billy White (b. 1962)

Billy White (b. 1962)

Billy White is a natural storyteller.

He weaves tales throughout the scenes he creates in his drawings and paintings, explaining that narrative form in his head while he is drawing. White’s subjects range from such casual encounters to people he meets; to film and television celebrities; as well as imagined characters like “Count Dracula, the Wrestler.” 

(Yes, you probably saw him on that episode of ABC TV’s “Secret Millionaire.”)
