Ben Barter Illustration  Building worlds, creating characters and telling stories.

http://benbarter.com/

I haven't posted in a while and now I can finally reveal the project I have been working on behind the scenes...
-
I was hired to illustrate the official children's picture book for Londonโ€™s 2017 World Para-Athletics Championships and the World Athletics Championships event. 'MASCOTS! GO FOR GOLD.' written by Paul Aldridge, characters based on Blue Peter's competition winner, Elinor, aged nine.
-
The book will be on sale as part of the championshipsโ€™ merchandise, so make sure you get your copy before they are sold out! A donation of the profits from the book sales will be made to various charities. If youโ€™re not attending the Championships in London this year, never fear as you can buy the book from the official Championships website. -
Although the deadline for the project was extremely tight the whole process has been an awesome experience and itโ€™s been an honour to be part of it. I hope you enjoy the book - I do really appreciate the support. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ“•

What happens next?

A mystery illustration based on two girls spying on a thief. And yes, this story does involve some old fashioned spying in the woods.

I'd love to hear your thoughts ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time to me has easily one of the most nostalgic soundtracks to a video game ever. Whenever I hear the music from the game it brings back that sense of adventure and magic from when I very first played it.
To honour this great game and the upcoming release of the new title Breath of the Wild, I wanted to capture that sense of magic with an illustration of Link and Navi taking a stroll through the Lost Woods.
I could hear the Lost Woods music playing on repeat in my mind when I was working on this illustration ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽต What's your favourite song from this legendary game?

A rough value test for my Link and Navi illustration.
Although its very hard to decide, The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time has to my favourite Zelda game of the series. The storyline, the music and the feel for adventure is a masterpiece in my eyes.
What's your favourite Zelda game? I would love to know โ˜บ
