About

I am Benjamin Mason i have just graduated from an illustration course in the UK with a large debt and and an education that doesn't quite match (not saying i am not a skilled illustrator just my course and tutors left a lot to be desired) and now i am back home with my parents. now i know this isn't anything new or amazing pretty much every student has to move back home and pretty much every student comes out of uni feeling they have been part of an elaborate scam. anyway il get to the point i want to set up a studio to produce illustrations, comics and just overall to get my work out there....simple as that....well saying it is simple, doing it on the other hand might prove tricky. thats where you peeps could step in (if you fancy it) any pledges from one shilling to two drachma would be super helpful, i suppose the best way to decide if you want to pledge would be to have a mosey through my website, check it out and see if anything takes your fancy. you are probably wondering what the plan of attack is so here it is, basically i am aiming to convert a large storage shed in my parents yard into a fully functioning illustration studio for screen printing and other creative endeavours, this is going to be quite a task since it has been used to hold all kinds of junk since the 80's, once i have it cleared out and fixed up the next step would be making it liveable in by insulating it and putting down lino flooring and then finally fitting it out with all the hardware for screen printing and image making, my aim is to have it converted from run down old shed to active illustration studio before the year is out. the reason why i decided i wanted to set up my own studio was to have a place where i can work away from my parents house since they both work from home and there is constantly people coming and going which makes it quite busy and noisy and not the place you want to be doing any creative work in.

Risks and challenges

It should all go off without a hitch but if you are still unsure the only thing i could say to ease your mind is that this is the only thing i have ever wanted and will ever want to do, it's been my life goal to be an illustrator for as long as i can remember (i know you have probably heard that a million times but it is honestly true) so me giving up on this project isn't a scenario that will happen, also coming from a long line of builders (hence the name Mason) i will have the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge from the rest of my family to make this a more realistic goal. as i said in the project description i want to get this all done before the end of the year but it does get very cold up north very fast once we start heading towards winter so keep in mind that it might take a little bit longer than i have estimated.
