Born the son of a coal miner and the middle child of 4 boys in Pontefract, West Yorkshire in the 80’s, it became apparent from an early age that Bill had an aptitude for art, this would eventually lead him to the path of his dream job in illustration.

For over 15 years award-winning illustrator Bill McConkey has been one of the UK’s busiest editorial artists, creating images for the nations biggest publications

His extensive client list includes: Empire magazine, The Guardian, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Mojo, Friends of the Earth, Top Gear, Forever Sport, Shortlist, Wired, Warner Bros, Gillette.

He is one of the leading exponents of pop culture related art here in Britain, and when not producing commercial artwork for many of this country’s greatest magazines and publications, he likes to spend his time developing personal work that revolve around many of his childhood obsessions, these include: toys, movies, tv… It has recently led to his brand of image-making being described as ‘Nostalgia Porn”

His Toybox series has gained a massive online following, each image collects together toy and action figure lines that date back to the artist growing up in the 1980’s.

Away from the pressures of creating images to deadlines, Bill spends weekends in the South Yorkshire countryside with partner Alison and cat Luca.
