Tuesday 29th March – Benji Spence
I’m an early career freelance illustrator based in Newcastle. I studied the Art Foundation at Sunderland University and then went on to do BA Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. My professional work is predominantly editorial illustration with some packaging and branding as well. The foundation of my work is shape, composition, and colour. I make bold and playful illustrations that aim to instantly engage the viewer.
