“Ben Drolet is an award-winning illustrator and designer who graced these pages in the recent past with his realistic and seemingly in motion artwork. Some of his early work was done with automotive companies like Stillen, SSE, AP Racing, Nissan, Chevrolet, Shelby, and many more. Spending most of his time nowadays as the Creative Director for a web design agency and mobile agency that specializes in corporate branding packages, the rest of the time is spent painting magazine covers for one of the biggest medical companies in the world, building furniture in his garage, and creating kickass renderings for the likes of Rockstar Garage, Gran Turismo, Tonka, as well as custom car and truck builders from across the country. Having gotten his start in and around the automotive world, Ben expanded his talent pool to where he is now but still remembers his roots and continues to do vehicle renderings.
