Benjamin started drawing ever since he could remember, but before he was ever inspired by the beautiful talents of Picasso, Monet, or Charlie Harper, he was sucked into the worlds conceived by artists like Ward Kimball, Maurice Noble, and Dr. Seuss. Born in Germany from American parents in the military (father from Nebraska and mother from Massachusetts), Ben spent his life moving around the world. And it is his life experiences that he draws from and is the most inspired by these days. ”I grew up always wanting to work in animation production, it has been a struggle but I’ve managed to carve a living doing that for over ten years now working for various studios from commercials to
Feature development and children’s cartoon series. I’m trying to think beyond that now. What do I have to offer the world as an artist? I want to illustrate the celebration of life through all the world’s diverse cultures and all that entails from music to craft and all the things that define a place. ” Benjamin currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and where the winds may take him next, only time will tell. ”
