Ben’s Banjo Bliss

If you’re a fan of 50s cartoons and illustration then you’ll definitely enjoy the work of London-based illustrator and animator Ben Mounsey (aka Green Glasses). With his rockin’ retro-tinged style it’s no surprise that he’s got Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon’s feathers in his cap! We particularly like his wide-eyed characters!

In true creative form, Ben created a set of trading-card-style business cards featuring a range of his characters. Surely the bus stop card is a chase one!

And one more thing that really caught our eye was this great little sketch Ben did to mark the release of Where The Wild Things Are!
