Will McLean is a designer and artist working in the Central Coast of NSW where he lives with his wife and 2 children.

Will is a meticulous developer and favours simplicity and clarity within his code. He can’t stand writing things twice so searches for any way to automate. His experiments can be found in the Exercises section of this site.

Will designs within systems. No project is too small for a design system. He favours the unusual, if not, how can he progress? You can read about his work in the Case Studies section of this site.

Did I drink that milk?…

Where am I? Who am I? My arms can’t move. A thousand pins poked into my eyes. I smell sour. Is it me? No. I’m covered in something. Vomit. Is it mine? I don’t recall drinking a pint of milk. But I don’t recall anything? My mind is fluffy. I’m in a thick white cloud. Or is it soup? Heavy soup. Did I drink that milk?… Maybe. Breastmilk. That rings a bell. I do remember that. What time is it? I’m pulling myself up to standing. Breastmilk. I’m walking over to the desk. Wipes. I can’t think. Crying. I just know just one thing. Tiredness. No! I know one more thing…

Art.

My eyes are bleeding. I rub away the blood. I must focus. I have a show. I must draw. I pick up my pencil…
