"Testimonial for the Magician, William North.

If only the world could be filled with the images of William North’s drawings, our daily troubles would evaporate into gargantuan smiles spreading from ear to ear. Age matters not as colorful animal and human characters form a whimsical play in a world hungry for such visual and necessary delights. 

His drawings create an imaginative universe that gives my eyes, mind, and heart a lightness of being. I may not know the story, but the animated creations that inhabit his vibrant environments give rise to journeys I want and need. Or rather, we need. Thank you, William, for giving me visual pleasures that always brighten my day.”

"North’s illustrations happily model kindness and positivity for young people. His brightly colored images are bursting with a sometimes-gleeful optimism surrounded by mystery, wonder, and exuberance. North’s steady hand is adept at paper-based drawing and technologically enhanced media and he consistently produces charming, diverse subjects and characters."

“William North is a superior illustrator, whose artistry is born from a beautifully spiritual place deep within his heart. You cannot ask for a more talented, more dedicated or more congenial collaborator. I have had the great pleasure of narrating two of his stories. William always aims for the good and the beautiful. I must, however,
also speak of William North as a man who has a vision and is able to maintain that
vision and bring it to fruition despite the problems and difficulties such efforts often
encounter. William is a remarkable artist and it has been my great pleasure to know
and work with him.”
