Heyo!



My name is Ben Geldenhuys A.K.A The Beardly Ben and I'm an artist from Cape Town, South Africa. I have a degree in multimedia from Tshwane University of Technology. I really like metal, gaming, comics, DRAWING comics and werewolves... lots and lots of werewolves. I live with my waifu Danelle Malan and our two silly cats, Goya and Pixel.

I have experience working in the animation industry, doing storyboards and concept art for several shows, including Munki and Trunk and also doing 2D animation for various projects, including a video game called Shattered Realms.

I made this Patreon to help support myself financially. Any and all contributions are most welcome, and I appreciate them all, even the smallest ones!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page, and super duper huge thank you if you decide to pledge. You rock!

I am looking forward to making lots of great art for you all.

Thanks!
- Ben
