For your consideration

Ben Marder, a graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, is currently working as a freelance illustrator in the greater Boston area.  He has always found image making to be a profound way to communicate. In his work we can see his spiritual and reflective nature. His illustrations have been published in journals such as, Nature and Current Opinion in Neurobiology, as well as online at, eLife Sciences.

Inspired by nature, Ben does not seek to achieve an artistic style but instead lets life speak to him through his work. Nature’s diversity is Ben’s biggest influence. Like in nature, there is evolution that occurs in the creative process. Ben’s artwork reflects the visible world which he observes, while at the same time trying to capture fleeting perceptions of the changing world around him.
