Super excited to have Mr Brown involved in this, those of you who’ve been a AnyForty head for a few years will remember Ben from his incredible Dead Batman graphic we dropped as part of 2012′s AnyForty & T-world “The Australian Invasion Series” and he’s been solidly building his legacy and crafting his art from his Manly, Sydney studio for longer than most of you guys have been born, proper legendary artist that’s built up a cracking back catalogue of work for legendary surf and skate clothing brands like Mambo, Globe and Rip Curl as well as doing classic gig posters for worldwide megastars like Ice Cube, event posters for Aussie skate/surf competition posters and way too much more sick stuff to mention, check out a couple bits of Ben’s work below and hit up his website for a proper inspirational trawl through his archives. Stay tuned for rtist Unveil 2 of 25 coming up tomorrow…

AnyForty & T-world presents… BEN BROWN

20th March 2012 | Tags: , , , ,

Our next artist in The Australian Invasion Series is Ben Brown; a man whose art Australians grew up seeing on everything – flyers, posters and now, of course, tees.

Who is Ben Brown, to those who don’t know you? A mild-mannered father of two young boys, who at full moon relishes biting the heads off seagulls, drinking their blood and indulging his passion for drawing skulls.

What do you think of the Australian illustration scene compared to the rest of the world? I view most of my favourite artists online and frequently have no idea where they reside. Having said that, there is definitely a community of illustrators and artists here with shared ideals and motivation.

How would you describe your style? I am influenced by the things I grew up with; skateboarding, surfing and super loud hardcore punk thrash death metal rock ‘n’ roll. I love ‘70s surf art, 80s skateboard art and rock posters. I guess my style is a mishmash of all those things.

What do you know about the UK in general? They have a fearsome Queen who will not die, and rules them with an iron fist.

Have you ever been to the UK and tell us about a memorable experience you had? When my wife was a long-haul hostess we spent Christmas in London while she was working. We crept through a big park and viewed the Palace of Dread where their mighty Queen resides, but she was away terrorising the poor people of Balmoral. So we went to the pub… I liked it.
