B.A., The Evergreen State College, 1977
With his independent study at Evergreen in 1977, William Schreib created caricatures of his twelve zodiac archetypes. These illustrations, created from his study of celebrity faces, became the content of his first book, Personalities of the Zodiac. In 1996, these studies provided the material for his monthly feature "Celebrity Snapshots", currently still featured in Dell Horoscope Magazine. In 2010, William completed his second book, Dance of the Zodiac: Rhythms and Patterns of Creation, and his video, "A Year in the Life"-- the movie that stars everybody! Schreib spent many years in the motion picture exhibition business in Seattle working for Seven Gables and SRO theaters. He is now retired and living in Idaho.

The astrological patterns come to life in cartoon caricatures, as the Earth makes its annual orbit around the sun. With a touch of humor, Bill's first book, Personalities of the Zodiac, shows how the modes, the elements and the planets all interact to shape the character of individuals.
Schreib's new book, Dance of the Zodiac, was developed from over ten years of research analyzing physiognomy of individuals. Using thousands of celebrity facial photos, Schreib shows that we are more than our Sun Sign. Pictures and caricatures also show the influence of the Moon and Rising Sign. The book demonstrates how we all are affected by the dance of light on this Earth. It shows we all are part of a universal creative process that occurs in quantum particles, in the spirals of galaxies and in all of the light creations in between.
How did Evergreen help you in your career?
During the formulation of my life-long project, I needed a longer period of time to study and create the illustrations for what I believed were possible to create. I also was given opportunity to develop script writing and production skills. Professors also opened up other avenues of research, including a study of Jung.
