Soldier of Empires – General Bill Slim
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link: http://illo.cc/72778

Late in 2016 I was commissioned to create an illustration of General Bill Slim in support of a much larger project entitled “Soldiers of Empires”. The project is primarily focused on the WW2 Burma Campaign and more specifically, The Battle of Imphal. In this illustration I was asked to portray General Slim creating parachutes out of cheap jute sacks as an affordable alternative to the more costly and less available silk parachutes of the time. Here’s a link for anyone who’s interested in reading about it further.

Working with Simon was wonderful. He communicated very quickly and clearly, paid amazing attention to detail, and really made sure to capture the feel we were looking for in a picture. Incredibly talented artist and overall great person.
