Ben Hodson loves creating art. He also loves a good adventure, like hiking the Rocky Mountains with a team of rescued wild burros, living in a mountain village in Nepal, or drawing comics with youth in South Africa. These experiences bring inspiration and new perspectives to his craft.
Ben illustrates mostly for children in books, magazines and textbooks. His books include I Love Yoga: A Guide for Kids and Teens; Pigs Aren’t Dirty, Bears Aren’t Slow and Other Truths about Misunderstood Animals; How the Moon Regained Her Shape; Jeffrey and Sloth; and most recently a graphic novel, Hear My Roar: A Story of Family Violence. He has also contributed to Lines in the Sand: New Writing on War and Peace.
He is the 2004 recipient of the Glass Slipper Award from the SCBWI Canadian Conference.
