Dr Bill Prosser was an illustrator with clients ranging from The Sunday Times to New Society; British Airways to American Express. During the last fifteen years this has devolved into drawings of Samuel Beckett’s doodles, marginal indoor spaces, and Mickey Mouse in intimate conversation with selected literary giants. His work has been exhibited in Europe and the USA, and he is now making drawings of food leftovers, together with a series based on Xavier de Maistre’s ‘A Journey Round my Room’.

He has been awarded a number of research positions, including Leverhulme Senior Research Fellow at the University of Reading and Andrew W. Mellon Research Fellow at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas. He is currently a Research Fellow at Regent’s Park College, University of Oxford.
