Episode 313: Interview with Illustrator Ben Brick

Podcast July 5, 2018 Mof1 Podcast
The latest in creative pop culture is only one mouth breather away.

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
