Ben Woodcock is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, illustrator, letterer and educator from Portland, Oregon. When he's not in the classroom or serving his clients, he is enjoying time with his love Caitlin and dog Murray, rooting on the Trail Blazers, "improving the house" or catching up with friends and family. He also enjoys billiards, street hoops, painting, subjecting others with his Spanish, competitive lawn games, The Office, a good IPA and SNEAKERS!
His work is motivated by the forging of unexpected relationships between content and context. With allegiances to place, sport, pop culture, language, headlines, nostalgic objects and letterforms, his work constructs an assembly that is celebratory and jovial in nature [with a dash of satire and cynicism at times], but also supremely thoughtful in its intent.
Ben is currently a staff artist at New Seasons Market, adjunct instructor within Portland State University's Graphic Design program and is available for freelance design and illustration opportunities.
