Benjamin Schipper

Benjamin Schipper is an artist whose work I have admired from the time we were in art classes together in college. Schipper uses a combination of traditional and digital media to create unique illustrations. I love the use of line, color, and shape that makes his work look spontaneous and yet still complex.


When asked to say a little about himself Ben says that he, “loves to create artwork and illustrations that have sad, spooky, and poignant emotions. He likes people in general, and animals in particular. He lives in Greenville, South Carolina with his wife Karen and their little black dog Willow. He wishes it rained more there”.









Benjamin Schipper has illustrated several books including the ones pictured above and below. You can see more of Ben’s artwork and read his blog at
