ben creates each image as an original painting using classical, hand drafting techniques to apply paint to various materials.
he has his original paintings professionally scanned to capture high-resolution images.
using photo-manipulation software and various aesthetic judgments, ben creates the final "print image" from the scan.
once the print image is finalized, it is uploaded to a large format printer which releases ink onto canvas or acrylic.
when prints are in a series, they are numbered sequentially starting at 1. in these cases, the print number will be followed by the total number in the series.
instead of a number, some prints are labeled with an "ap," which signifies "artist's proof."
