ABOUT


AHOY!

I'm Ben! I'm a children's book authorstrator (best known for the Narwhal and Jelly books). I have spent most of my time on this planet reading, drawing, playing basketball, gardening and eating waffles. I live in Seattle, WA with my wife Kelsey (a photographer and designer), son, daughter, and a wild goldendoodle named gigi (aka Wookie).
