Ben Rothery's painstakingly but beautifully detailed work is powerful and aesthetically pleasing and he joins me to tell me how it all began. How did his fascination with nature and species come about as a youngster and how does it feel to spend days on a single drawing?
Ben tells me why he was a difficult student, in a rare position of knowing exactly where he wanted to go with his creativity and what kind of response that received.
How many times have you encountered the rare combination of illustrator and strongman? I know. Not many, right? Well prepare to be wowed by the double life Ben leads...
It's a great insight into dedication, drive and ambition.
