Logo3 Portrait a 600pxHi, I’m Ben – I’m a freelance illustrator with a degree in Psychology.

I live in Edinburgh, making conceptual illustrations for magazines and books as well as cartooning and painting the Scottish countryside.

I love simplicity in art, but need to keep reminding myself that life is messy. This is where my style comes from. In any illustration, I aim to create a powerful mood through striking colours and composition with some real-life grit collaged in from photos.
