Ben Reynolds was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in December of 1981. He grew up playing hockey and drawing at every chance he could get. It was at 9 years old, after a trip to Disney World in Florida, where he saw artists working on the film Aladdin. It was that day that he realized drawing was actually a job, and his path was set.
Ben pursued a career in the arts by enrolling in animation school locally in Ontario, and has since enjoyed a fruitful career working as an artist for games, animated films, illustrated books and advertisements. The Disney influences that kick-started Ben’s career still remain strong today and can be seen throughout his work, but Ben’s style would be best described as whimsical, colorful and imaginative. Ben still lives in Toronto, after now starting his own family, and plans to share his love for illustration and creativity with his son and daughter.
