carlos benson studios
Welcome to my art page. All of my drawings are hand-drawn. I use graphite pencil, markers, and ink pens. I'm new to digital art, but I'm finding it a fun medium as well. Check out the videos tab for time-lapse videos of my work. And finally, A4K! is my children's Christian apologetics e-books. I self-publish them on Amazon Kindle.
Carlos has been doodling ever since he can remember. He is self-taught, having honed his drawing skills on the pages of all his school books. His comic strip IAN , ran in the The Salt Lake Tribune for two years. Located now in Independence, Missouri, he has entered many art shows and has won several first place awards for his realistic drawings. He has also self-published several Christian children's e-book called "Apologetics 4 Kids!" They can be found on Amazon Kindle.
Carlos was born in Chile and moved to the States when he was eight. He is a graduate of the University of Utah, a veteran of Desert Storm and is now a local mailman. He has been married to Audree for over 20 years and has two kids, Cora and Gabriel.
Like all artists, he wishes he could draw for a living.
This is an interview I did with KMBC about my artwork, more specifically, how to draw Patrick Mahomes. This was a segment they were running during Superbowl week. It was cool seeing my art on the local news. I edited it to take out the artwork that wasn't mine so it wouldn't be confusing.
This appeared a few years ago in the Examiner (Independence paper). It's behind a paywall now so I took screen shots.
