Illustration Insights

The Ben The Illustrator Illustration Insights Podcast is an ideal listen if you are starting out in the creative industry, thinking about freelancing or already up and running in the freelance world.

Ben is a champion of honesty, and in the illustration world that is absolute gold dust.

Not only is Ben honest and open around his work specifically, but also his life. Having moved to London, starting in video and animation, looking up to people like Spike Jonze and realising that wasn't right. Changing industries in his early 20s and starting that journey all over again.

Ben also elaborates on being stubbornly independent and independently stubborn. Being self employed since he left college, one of his regrets being that he didn't work for someone before creating his own business.

That drive that makes him successful, can also potentially be limiting around his development.


The illustration insights podcast is a series released weekly which shares insights from some of the best illustration talent on the planet. We ask the questions that we all want to know, like 'Why did you get involved in illustration in the first place? How do you win work? How do you keep that work coming in?".
