Ben Kirchner

Ben Kirchner is a UK based illustrator who’s art definitely made my morning. I think I came across his work on Flickr and was totally enamored with the way he used color and textures in his illustrations. Two of my favorite illustrations of his were these fake book covers that are in the same vein of old Penguin Books without being cheesy. The Hell’s Angel one is spot on, made up of some really great shapes, his mustache is especially nice. The onion head man totally reminds me of Parappa the Rapper which is reason enough to post it if you ask me.
