In his early teens he wrote and illustrated several stories, bound them into little books and sent them off to publishers, but they were always rejected. After graduating from art and business schools, Wilhelm moved to Africa, where he worked for a major corporation for several years. Still very much interested in the arts, however, he wrote and illustrated stories for fun. Eventually, he gave up his job and began traveling the world in search of a different kind of life.
