Aal Aboot Me: Ben Holland
Hello. My name is Ben Holland.
I am an artist and illustrator based in Heaton (originally known as High Town), Newcastle Upon Tyne.
The drawings on this site reflect my view of Newcastle and the North East. Beyond the great landmarks, these are the places we live our everyday lives; from pubs and cinemas to barber shops and newsagents.
I like to think of these places being alive with hope, possibility, romance and, in the most atmospheric spots – a certain edginess – something I increasingly hope to capture within my work.
Away from pen and paper, I love music (a lot) and my little family (more).
Thanks for having a look around. Any questions, just ask.
