Ben Javens is an illustrator with a terrific style. Originally from a small Yorkshire town called Ossett, Javens headed to Birmingham in the late 90′s to complete a Fine Art degree at the University of Central England. After that he wandered for several years in what he describes as “the wilderness that is life after graduation”. Fortunately he found his true calling as an illustrator a few years later and, as he says on his website he “hasn’t looked back since”.
Ben’s style is fun, playful and charming. Recently he made a tamborine for the Sound It Out Charity which I really love. The simplicity of his work is so good and his images are bound to bring some color to your day. Go check out more of what he makes on his website here.
