Digital Caricatures by Ben Thoughts on Illustration: Benjamin is a story-teller at heart and was drawn to illustration as a way of telling stories through a visual medium. He sees the art of illustration as more current, available, and immediately accessible than many other art forms. He finds inspiration in Norman Rockwall’s eye for detail, in Barron Storey’s passion for art and emotional honesty, and in Thomas Blackshear’s adeptness in all mediums, as well as his approachability and generosity.

Thoughts on advertising/commercial art (illustration): Benjamin is drawn to the challenge of telling the client’s story in his work as a commercial illustrator. He finds that both storyboards and comps allow him to exercise his storytelling abilities in a visual medium. In comps this is done through situations and spatial placement of objects and people and in storyboards it is accomplished through the depiction of action and movement. The world of commercial illustration is a perfect fit for him as he is driven by the challenge of producing good artwork at a demanding pace with tight deadlines.
