The new issue of Bizarre should be out on the 27th, featuring a five page article about MEEE!
If you're interested in reading any of my stupid ramblings go and check it out. It also has a full page image that I did for them which is now available as a limited run print from my print site.

The only downside is that they used a hideous photo of me in the article in which I look like a potato, so ignore that bit!
I'm working on a few different images at the minute, but none of them are anywhere near completion... I'll try and post some WIPs up soon though.

It's never " foxy" to OD kids and it looks Iike that's what some of you think.
And now there are books to prove it?
Rite Aid to GE are" bending over backwards" , and you better follow those words.
Nevada has no more forked tongues because they have been hit by their own mobsters.

Hey Ben, amazing work as usual! I've been following your blog for a long time after seeing your little red riding hood entry in Bizarre (which by the way is excellent!) and just got through reading your interview in Bizarre. I'm so inspired by your work and hope I too can be as good as you one day, however you are my Jenny Saville and I feel I will never be as good!
Thanks a lot anyway, keep on inspiring!

Wow! Finally found your Blog, it's nice to put a name to the work you know. Been a huge fan of your art in Bizarre (without knowing it was yours) for some time now and to find out you also did the character design for the Timesplitters series?! I am in awe man, dumbstruck and ecstatic. That series is the sole reason my PS2 is still set up in my room and the characters were so much a part of that. You made me want to be a better artist, I'm not, but you made me strive for it.

Any chance of more TS stuff? Cause I would part with hardearned for the privilege or do "they" have the rights whoever "they" are now since the series died far too prematurely. I've played so many games since the goldendays of TS and Free Radical and none have the same standard or variety of memorable characters comparable to the hundreds you gave us in the space of 3 games . . .

Thanks! I don't have a load more ts stuff, but i will post what i do have up at some point. I didn't do the ts characters alone though; I don't have links for all of them but here are some other character guys who worked on it:
