Super Llama: Llamas are awesome! (36)
My Bio

My name is Ben. I've had an interest in making comic books since I was about 11.

I've been drawing since I could hold a pen, but I didn't start drawing people until I was an adult. Sometime around 2009ish I decided to finally take the ideas floating around in my head and flesh them out into comic books, so I buckled down, learned to draw the human face and figure, and set out to write and storyboard everything.

It took a while to get the first two issues out there, because I do literally every job; Artwork, story, character design, lettering, I even buy the barcodes that go on the front... I also had to let one of my ideas bubble to the surface.

I started Dragonspit Publishing not just as a platform for my own work, but to sign other artists, writers, and creative teams. The goal is to eventually expand into animated shows and movies, action figures and collectables, the works. And most importantly, to put great content out there without compromise. None of the watered down, big corporate trash that happens when you let Hollywood touch something.

Favourite Visual Artist
That's a tough one. Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell are at the top of the list, but kind of depends on my mood.
Favourite Movies
In no particular order, Edge Of The World, The Last Duel, Inception, Leon The Professional, and the John Wick and Matrix series'.
Favourite TV Shows
I don't watch much TV at all. In fact, I avoid it like the plague, but the last series I remember enjoying all the way through was the Harley Quinn animated series.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
The Birthday Massacre, Ego Likeness, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, ANYTHING with Maynard James Keenan or Liv Kristine, Xandria, Elton John, Disturbed and Filter, just to name a few.
Favourite Books
Aside from comics, I don't read much fiction, but the John Constantine Hellblazer and Lucifer series' are a couple of my all time favorites. Also The Invisibles and Watchmen. Non-fiction are too many to name.
