This spiral-bound sketchbook features 150 perforated pages and a thick cardboard backing to keep it from bending.
Ben Horton first gained notoriety through graphics he created for skateboard decks – himself a skateboarder, with other 15 years of disservice to his joints. Horton’s ideas come from photographs and his life experience. The people that inhabit Horton’s canvases have an indefinable connection, something gleaned from their expressions or eyes. There is a richness and familiarity in his cast of characters. Birds are a common theme, swooping and soaring through the foregrounds and backgrounds of the works. He exploits his artistic talents on various mediums such as canvas, paper, and wood using acrylics, house paints, ink, and sharpie pens. Whatever is lying around and easily available to him.
