I am an illustrator based in Tutshill, UK.

Ben Whitehouse is an illustrator born and raised in Birmingham UK. At the moment, he lives in Chepstow, Wales with his lovely girlfriend, Yvonne their beautful son, Timmy and their crazy border collie named Sparrow. Most recently Ben has worked at Aardman features on Nick Park's latest film 'Early Man' as an assistant animator. He has also worked in the animation industry as a character designer, animator and stop motion puppet maker before finding his happy feet within the world of illustration.

My first taste with animation was in 2004 and ever since then I have been well and truly hooked.

I graduated from Birmingham City University in 2010 with a First Class Honours Degree in Animation.

In November 2010 I won The Royal Television Society - West Midlands best student Animation award.

I am very passionate about my work and constantly strive to learn.
