Digital Artist and Illustrator
From the Pas, Manitoba, Christopher Benson moved to Winnipeg to see where an interest in the arts could lead. Here to share a story about finding creative fulfillment and artistic self worth by fumbling into the local fandom artist community.
The Story of the Bucket Hat Man
BY CHRISTOPHER BENSON
@ VOL 39
ON SEP 05, 2019
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.
Christopher's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 39, on September 5, 2019, at the Park Theatre.
