During a lunar eclipse in the 1970s, Ben Shannon’s mother plucked a feather from the tail of an eagle and thrust it into a crucible filled with molten diamond (probably while Led Zeppelin blared). Thus Ben Shannon was born! This auspicious beginning is why he strives daily to make beauty wherever he goes! It’s also probably why he sparkles like one of the vampires from Twilight.
Ben’s won heaps of awards for illustration and animation, (most recently a 2019 Gold Medal for Digital Publishing). He’s currently the Digital Art Director for CBC Radio and has worked for loads of other kick-ass clients such as; National Geographic, Rolling Stone, The Globe & Mail, The Wall Street Journal, Nike, Universal Music, Marvel & DC Comics.
