An Interview With Ben Whitehouse

The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.

We are delighted to present an interview with the children's book illustrator, Ben Whitehouse. Ben is an illustrator born and raised in Birmingham UK. At the moment, he lives in Chepstow, Wales with his lovely girlfriend, Yvonne and their crazy border collie named Sparrow. Ben has worked at Aardman features on Nick Park's latest film 'Early Man' as an assistant animator. He has also worked in the animation industry as a character designer, animator and stop motion puppet maker before finding his happy feet within the world of illustration.
