The portfolio archive contains images of some of Bill’s art from the past few decades. We hope you enjoy seeing the progression of his work over the years.

Bill has had the opportunity to have his work featured on many magazine and book covers throughout the years, and it continues to be a frequent request he often consents to. But there is one publication who has featured Bill's work more than any other, and that is Western Horseman. His artwork has graced their cover thirty-one times, as of the July 2012 issue; and was the first artist to have a two-page fold out Western Horseman cover. These covers are all framed and proudly hanging in Bill's studio, so it felt appropriate that they be shared with viewers of his site. This page will be updated with recent covers from time to time. We hope you enjoy them!
