Frequently Asked Questions

 I've started a list of Frequently Asked Questions at bethywilliams.com. I will most likely add more as time goes on. If you think of some I may have forgotten, or if you yourself have a question you'd like answered, email me: bethywilliams@gmail.com

Frequently Asked Questions: What kind of pen do you use? What does the writing say? What are your influences?

New project: Automatic Drawings


Starting January 2011, I'm very pleased to offer a rather unique type of commission, which I like to call an "automatic drawing". Here's how it works:

1. You put a pen or pencil to paper and make a free-form scribble. Just let it flow, don't try to make it a picture of anything in particular.
2. Send the scribble to me. I will transfer it to a 5" by 7" piece of hot-press watercolor paper. Then I will pick out shapes and images that I see within the scribble.
3. I will convert the scribbly shapes to an ink drawing in my unique style.

A black and white automatic drawing will cost you $100. If you would like me to add some color, I will do so for $150.

Please note:

  1. The "automatic drawing" allusion is all in fun. This is not meant to diagnose or predict anything.
  2. Due to the nature of the process, I cannot make edits to the piece. That defeats the entire idea! I do promise that what will result is a piece of a quality as high as the rest of my work.
  3. This type of work can take some time. If you have a particular deadline in mind please let me know when you place your order.


If you would like to order an automatic drawing, please contact me at bethywilliams@gmail.com.
