Ben Dineen is a digital artist, illustrator, & yogi, based in the SF Bay Area. He began his creative and artistic explorations as a child, drawing and imagining a variety of fantastical creatures and worlds. This artistic process and exploration has continued, in one form or another, into the present.
Ben has studied a variety of both traditional and digital art mediums. He majored in Fine Art, studying within the Computer Animation & Fine Art programs while he was in college at SFSU. These days the bulk of his artwork is done using Photoshop, though he has also dabbled with other digital art software. At times Ben also likes to step away from the computer and do illustrations using pen & pencil, as well as painting with acrylic and watercolor paints. Overall, he enjoys consistently challenging himself in new ways, so that his artistic skills, vision, and artwork may continue to evolve, and hopefully offer himself and others a continued inspiration, joy, and/or amusement. :)
