Down, Down Into Infinity He Goes
Will Arnold: Risograph, Zines, and “Cheap” Art

Will Arnold is an artist and staff member at the School of Art & Design. He is the co-founder of Work Press & Publication, a small, independent press that specializes in short run Risograph-printed books, zines, and prints. Will is also a part of the organizing teams for the Champaign-Urbana Small Press Fest and the St. Louis Independent Comics Expo (SLICE).

Will’s artistic practice is primarily centered around zines, comics, and artist books. Through collage and delving into and remixing historical comics, he explores themes such as landscape, perception, memory, and gender norms. He is also focused on making art objects accessible and available to art collectors and appreciators of all levels.

His work can be found online at www.twarnold.com and on Instagram at
