My name is Ben Fraser. My love for art began at a young age and was nurtured until it was time for college where I explored a variety of professional avenues. I attended Michigan State University for two years where I majored in not wanting to be an accountant. I made the move back home to community college where my journey took a more artistic turn receiving an associate's degree in digital art. Still hungering for knowledge of the arts I enrolled at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. While there, I fell in love with illustration and all the different pathways it could take me. Several years of hard work later I graduated with a bachelor's degree in illustration in December of 2017. Aside from receiving an excellent education at CCS I was lucky enough to attend the Illustration Academy in Kansas City, Missouri, twice, where I was taught by some of my favorite living artists in the summers of 2016 and 2017.
