Ben Ashton-Bell is a wicked illustrator / designer from Melbourne who will be contributing to our next issue called SWEET STREETS. Ben works from his bungalow studio where he constantly challenges and evolves his style. The development of his intricate technique sees him working in a variety of mediums, however his work is based mainly with pencil and inks. Ben is represented by the Jacky Winter group and works on both commercial and independent projects.
The works that you're getting a sneak peek at are the first of a trilogy called 'As Thoughts Fall'. These works explore ideas of transformation, life and death in the midst of a falling world. As Thoughts Fall is the beginning before the madness and has an openness to interpretation upon viewing. Ben uses the contrast of soft fragile line work and vivid, sprayed colour to help set mood and devolve imagination.
