Ben is the real deal. When he’s not doing axe restoration, Ben is hard at work … because his work is hard. Ben seeks to capture the style of old school hand drawn ads, and that means getting out of the computer and on to paper. His style may be popular now, but that isn’t the draw for Ben; it’s doing work that appeals to him and has the raw aesthetic of a past era. And he’s good at it. It’s a great conversation with a super kind dude.

Seeing is believing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The other day I was scrolling through YouTube lookin for something good and I stumbled on some killer theories 🧐 about the ancient pyramids. The more I watched the more I believed what I was hearing… the pyramids were made to generate electricity! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My whole world was flipped in a second as I realized, I have no idea what’s real. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know what ink to buy, what fonts I like, and what people I like to drink coffee with. But I used to fully believe there were 9 planets, and that peanut butter was a “healthy choice”. I still eat it and Pluto will never be forgotten. But I’m leaving science to the pros… I just wanna doodle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you know in your heart? I wanna know what you know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The original ink of this piece will be found in the @westacresmall for the @albinobuffalo701 gallery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And also featured in @zarts.zine ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #retroillustration #retrodesign #retroadvertising #illustrator #cartoonist #branding #brandconsultant #brandillustration #1950s #instaart #truegrit #retrosupply #boyslifemagazine #oldschool #inkandpaper #handmade #northdakota #jakalope #prarie #theodoreroosevelt #pulpmagazine #pulp #illustration
@joelportermusic is releasing his new album and he wants the first place to see it to be his home town. So he called up @wearemakewell and they set up a pretty fun couple of evenings for you. This is a piece made for the event … I saw the other art coming in and there is a really nice mix of talents. I’m looking forward to sharing the day with you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Get your prairie hireath ticket in my bio link!
