Christopher Benson

Digital Artist and Illustrator in Winnipeg

The Story of the Bucket Hat Man

PRESENTED ON SEP 05, 2019
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 39

Chistopher Benson is an artist and digital illustrator who is a familiar face to the local convention and fandom communities. However, this would not have been possible if it were not for his perseverance in pursuing a life in art, and the support of other artists, cosplayers, and creatives who share similar interests. This PechaKucha talk is Christopher's love letter to those that have helped him along the way, and is an uplifting story about art, community, determination, and the spirit of friendship.
