I'm Ben Keable and I'm an illustrator, artist and designer.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Television, news, stuff I read, things I hear, things that happen to me and basically anything that I experience. You've gotta take notice of the things that happen in the world, it can inspire you and your work; never stop reading and learning and you'll continue to create interesting work.
What do you most enjoy about your area of work?
When I meet people who enjoy my work, or when people get in contact with me. It's great. I also enjoy it when people hate my work and get angry by it. I don't know which is more fun.
Who is your favourite person in your field?
I enjoy David Shrigley's work. I also enjoy Modern Toss.
Describe your style...
I like to think that my work puts a comedically pessimistic outlook on the massive bullshit parade we call life. I try to communicate the things that we all know, but don't really want to hear or see.
What’s your one golden rule to make it in your line of work?
Get yourself noticed in any way you can. Cause a scene. Let people know you're around. Stop worrying people won't like you or your work, because you can be sure not everyone will, but make sure you make the most of the people who do.
