Gingers! Goes Viral

In case you didn't know, I'm famous. Well, not really, but my recent illustration, Gingers!, did go viral! Someone blogged it on tumblr, and it took off from there. It was reposted over 7000 times on tumblr, has over 8000 hits on my flickr and has appeared all over the interwebs. It was pretty exciting to see it take off overnight.

Vanilla Ice Cream Man


I recently completed this illustration for a contest at threadless called THREADWARS . The idea was thought up by the great Alex Solis , of threadless fame. The idea, inspired by March Madness, was to pit threadless designers against each other in a tournament style bracket. Each round would have a theme, and the winners would proceed to the next round. The theme of the first round was hybrid. So I decided to depict the hybrid of Vanilla Ice, and an ice cream man. The result is an absurd piece of art that I thought only I could appreciate. It scored surprisingly well, and I defeated my competitor in the first round. Now, go tell threadless you want to wear Vanilla Ice Cream Man on your body!

Pinball Wizard - my most nerdy t-shirt to date.

Yes, its true. I currently have a t-shirt for sale that references LOTR (thats Lord of the Rings to those of you that might not be in the know). Right now your thinking,"I had no idea Ben was such a nerd, dork, dweeb, geek or even goober!" First off, I may be a little dorky, fair enough. But you went too far with dweeb and goober, frankly I'm offended. Let me explain. About six months ago I was approached by Evan Ferstenfeld, or frickinawesome as he's known around the world of designer t's, if I would like to collaborate with him. Evan has made a name for himself around the t-shirt world with his slogans and prints at and his own site, So when he asked if I would like to work with him, I said,"sure, why not?" The concept he asked me to illustrate was called Pinball Wizard. Basically a visual pun based off of The Who's hit song of the same name. Here is what we ended up with.


We submitted it to threadless, where it received a decent score, but not good enough to print. Next stop was shirt woot. The people there liked it, but wanted us to give it more of a LOTR feel. So the two kids in the back were replaced with an elf and dwarf, resembling the characters from the movie.


Did I sell out and compromise my morals as an artist by pandering to the hoards of Frodo Baggins fanboys? Yea... pretty much.
Now go buy it!

My most recent illustration, Alien Apple, is a collaboration between myself and my threadless buddy, Evan Ferstenfeld (frickinawesome). Evan came up with the concept, and I brought it to life. It's a parody of the iconic scene from Alien, the movie.
