Early in his career, William Hudson worked as an illustrator, and cartoonist. His comic strip, Dumbbells, was published across North America in magazines such as Canada’s, Razor and the U.S. Periodical, Alpinist. However, William Hudson’s true inspiration was not awakened until 1999, when he first explored the barrios of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It was during his first trip to the port city located at the mouth of the Rio De La Plata, that he developed a new perspective on his art. There, immersed in the intimate culture of the porteno and surrounded by the fading majesty of the South American metropolis, William Hudson found a new artistic vision, one that would move him away from the commercial world of editors and art directors and into galleries and private collections.
