Ben Tallon ‘Dream Clients Are Child’s Play’
Ben is an Illustrator and Art Director and the voice behind the Arrest All Mimics podcast in ‘Dream Clients Are Child’s Play’ Ben will talk about how his childhood obsessions with WWE, He Man and Football inform his practice.
‘The core thread to my book, Champagne and Wax Crayons, is the organic, haphazard path from my childhood pleasures of drawing, professional wrestling and football through to a career full of ups and downs in the creative industry, but ultimately one that has led me to dream clients because so never deviated from the things others would later consider immature or nothing more than a hobby.
Telling funny, useful and hard-learned stories of utilising my passions, the key pillars of my childhood in order to unlock doors to various people, companies, levels of experience and ultimately some of the world’s biggest clients, the talk will focus on why it is crucial to always play. The focus on enjoyment of the learning process is often forgotten once past our teens, when in fact, embracing both the opportunities that feel risky and ones inner child, are optimum ways to find your niche and stand out in the creative industries.’
