Ashton Leigh Will provides graphic design for Valutivity and The Consulting Arts. He was the cover designer for A Fine Basket of Fish in 2013. His illustrations in The Long-Lost Troll (2017) are much more extensive, including cover art, chapter art featuring characters, and double-page spreads.
Ashton's graphic designs are featured for the county-wide Advance College Academy Handbook (2018-2019) and for all plays in the 2016-2017 season for the Lee-Davis Players. In 2016-2017, his artworks were exhibited in the Lee-Davis High School Art Show, including a still life, a pencil sketch, a graphic design, a vector portrait and a sculpture. Another of his still lifes was displayed in the Hanover County Public Schools Superintendent’s office. He has won nearly a dozen awards in the PTA Reflections contest through the years, most recently earning a state-level Award of Merit for Film Production in 2015.
His art education began at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts when he was just 3 years old; in high school, Cheryl Dillard has been a key mentor. He has also taken a course at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He plans to major in Communication Arts or Illustration with a focus on character design and graphic novelism.
Ashton has participated in the following Broadway plays: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (Assistant Stage Manager), You're a Good Man Charlie Brown (Stage Manager), Seussical the Musical (props), Little Women (tech), Schoolhouse Rock (actor), Scrooge (actor), and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (actor). Ashton is a member of International Thespian Society.
On weekend evenings, Ashton hangs out with his friends in Advance College Academy—in person or via Twitch. He sings and dances in a show choir called Madz, does tech for the Lee-Davis Players and enjoys the Board Games Club.
