Will Bryant v. Peter Pan & Wendy
- Who are you and what do you do?
Will Bryant makes stuff as a freelance creative. He’s a member of Public School, an Austin based collective comprised of designers, illustrators, and photographers. “Mr. Fancy Pants” has had the privilege to work with clients such as Nike, Stussy, Graniph and Kraft Foods. When he’s not drawing, blogging, or smiling he’s probably laughing with his young bride.
- Why did you pick the story you chose?
Well, I couldn’t come up with anything and I asked my good friend Kate Bingaman Burt. She quickly suggested Peter Pan and it made total sense! I LOVE Peter Pan (mostly referring to Hook, a film that shaped my childhood). So with a sense of nostalgia and an infatuation of the 90s I selected the wonderful story by J.M. Barrie. I’m planning on adding my own twist to it, because I know I cannot do the originals justice. This whole project will be very challenging for me and I’m honored to be included.
Will is one of the most charming people I know and I for one cannot wait til February 9th to see his first piece for this!
