Wade Douglas Dillon is an accomplished freelance illustrator and artist based in Southeast Texas specializing in historical subjects.

Born to creative parents in Northeast Florida in 1988, Wade was immediately wrapped up in their love for art, film, and history. Their passions became his own and shaped the person that Wade is today - a lover of Texas history, devoted Batman geek, horror fan, and cheeseburger connoisseur.

In 2010, Wade left Florida to pursue his dream of working at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. For eight years, he served as a tour guide and Visitor Services Supervisor. During that time, Wade's career took off illustrating three books for Pelican Publishing Company


Today, Wade is the Museum Manager of the Freeport Historical Museum in Freeport, Texas. When he isn't running a museum, Wade creates artwork for clients across the country. Currently, Wade is working on his passion project creating a graphic novel about his hero David Crockett, which is dedicated to the memory of his father Allen. 

Inspired by comic book and historical artists, Wade enjoys exploring and pushing his self-taught style, creating vivid and dynamic illustrations that pop-off the page.

When he is away from his studio Wade enjoys having adventures with his lovely wife Lindsey, eating cheeseburgers with his pets Butter, Scout, and Polly, participating in living history events with his friends, and attending comic book and horror conventions.
