Authors and illustrators
Ben was born in Calgary, Canada but has spent almost 97% of his life on the west coast of British Columbia. Growing up in such a beautiful place inspired Ben at a young age to learn to create. In the first grade, he first realized that he could draw when he noticed that his letter 'O' looked like a character from a comic strip. It was all downhill from there! After graduating from Vancouver’s Capilano College's Illustration and Design program in 2007, Ben has been working as a freelance illustrator. Drawing has always been his passion and enjoys illustration as a career. Ben also works with his folk band, Adelaide, and will soon begin recording on an album...and enjoying the beauty of that part of the world that initially inspired him to be an artist.
