Ben Staves

My name is Ben Staves, I am currently studying for my Masters in Architecture at Northumbria University.

Drawing and illustrating has always been a huge passion of mine, particularly when it comes to architectural studies and cityscapes. The 3D Globe style I have originally started as a University project when we were given the task of mapping the city in an unusual way. Since that first drawing of Newcastle I have gone on to create globes of a number of cities around the world including London, Paris and New York.

I use pen and ink to outline and detail the cities streets, buildings and landmarks then add a splash of colour to highlight the natural elements in the landscape.
