Two Illustrators Locking Arms with Dameon Williams and Josh Lewis

Episode 397, Airs Wednesday, December 1st, 2021

Illustrators usually have distinct styles and don’t often partner up for projects together. Well this week that is exactly what happened. Dameon Williams and Josh Lewis.

This team-up is different and these illustrators are unique. This duo is hoping to do more collaborations and stretch in the future. This collaboration started about a month before the 100 year memorial and both illustrators have a love for history which sparked this history-based side project. 

Learn more about how the executed, ideated, project managed, and illustrated all while they worked their regular jobs. We are nearing the end of 2021 and I am excited to interview Dameon and Josh about this project and hope there are more up their sleeves.
