Ben Newman & The Frontiers of Space

Ben Newman: A man who spends his life drawing weird shapes and cats. Ben is an illustrator known for his playful characters and use of bright colour. He has produced wonderful work for Penguin, The New York Times and TATE Modern to name but three...

We came to into Ben's manically charged workspace to see what makes him tick... and perhaps also, to capture his fluffy companion Nico on film. What inspires Ben to create his work and what has led him to this point in his life, in Hastings? With a dog. Surrounded by old scrappy toys.
