A prolific artist and illustrator he was particularly associated with depictions of wildlife. He was trained at Hastings and the Royal Academy Schools, and worked also with the Natural Histopry Museum at visualisations of prehistoric life. His posthumously published (1997) war memories are well worth study. He produced poster designs for London Transport from 1949-1955.
The Natural History Museum in London records the following, "His anthropological work can be found in Peter Andrews and Chris Stringer's publication Human Evolution: An Illustrated Guide (1989), with his animal reconstructions published in W. E. Swinton's very popular handbooks which included Fossil Amphibian and Reptiles (1954) and Fossil Birds (1958). Wilson also illustrated Wilfrid Le Gros Clark's, A History of the Primates (1949) with a series of fine black and white drawings whilst other illustrations have accompanied displays in the Museum's public galleries."
The depictions of animals and birds are realised with a curiously Chinese delicacy of brushwork, but the Coastal Craft book(above) demonstrates his exact understanding of structure and working parts.
