Ben Walker

Ben Walker | Artist Statement / Bio Ben Walker is a San Francisco based illustrator. Up to the age of five, Ben Walker was raised on a California ranch not unlike the famed Ponderosa, complete with a dirty main street, jailhouse, bell tower and saloon. Walker spent his early years with these empty structures serving as his playground. His family left the ranch and Walker grew up in suburban Santa Rosa and later on, Sacramento. Not concerned with schoolwork, he spent his time drawing and inventing flying machines. He watched movies about barbarians, read Spiderman comics, and drew comics about his stupid friends. After graduating high school Ben spent his days drawing indie comic books and supported himself by making balloon animals at night. He eventually got a job as a graphic artist and found himself riding the dot.com boom. By the time the bubble burst he realized he had forgotten his true loves, drawing and painting. He enrolled at the Academy of Art in San Francisco where he received a BFA in Traditional Animation. Now the American West serves as Walker’s playground once more. By combining comic book aesthetics with his deep love for Americana, the Old West and his own family history, Ben Walker explores the themes of adventure, action, loneliness, love, travel and innovation, always with a wink and a nod.
