Hey bloggies! It pleases me to be able to do a Spotlight Session on this guy, Ben Gillin. I first ran into Ben because I saw my twitter handle had been @ replied, and I wanted to see where the link led me. I ended up finding awesome!
Ben runs a site called Twetches. Now if you couldn’t figure out why, Twetches is the place “Where Twitter Meets Sketching”. Searching for inspiration one day, he went on a search on Twitter for “Ninja Turtles”. What he found was a tweet from me.
“I want to watch old school teenage mutant ninja turtles cartoons right NOW! #GottaGivePropsTo me!”
What he sketched got me so excited I instantly wanted it on a tee shirt. This is what I saw when I got to Twetches. Now if you click on that picture you can see the tweet I originally put out, as well as the details of the sketch Ben pumped out in what seemed like a matter of minutes. Now unless this is your first time on my blog, you should know that I <3 anything ninja related! I grew up punch drunk on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so this made me squeal like a school girl. I think the man is a freaking beast of an artist and I do hope to get this on a shirt one day, but until then let me stop teasing and take you right to the interview with the awesome, Ben Gillin!
