The aBlogtoWatch Store now stocks and ships Ben’s powerful and colorful prints on some of the most popular watches on the market, perfectly complementing Tamás’s strikingly
accurate and methodical collection of hand-drawn watch art. We chose them because they both provide us — and hopefully you —
with a new way to appreciate wristwatches, watchmaking, and watch design on a larger-than-life scale. Let us now introduce Ben to you through a quick Q&A.
What brought you to aBlogtoWatch and the aBlogtoWatch Store?
Ben Li, @Inkdial: I’ve been following aBlogtoWatch since I first became interested in watches.
I enjoy the variety and fun of the watches you cover, and it is an honor to be able to work with this incredible team.
I also believe in your experience and expertise in delivering my work to your audience as a store that already caters to watch enthusiasts all over the world.
aBlogtoWatch: How did you become a horological artist, and what artistic and technical skills do you employ in your works?
During the start of the lockdown in the UK in 2020, I began drawing watches.
It allowed me to hone my drawing skills while also allowing me to unwind during stressful times.
I discovered that drawing watches allowed me to improve my sense of composition, texture
and coloring abilities. I also used elements from my previous graphic and media design jobs.
aBlogtoWatch: Do you work as a full-time watchmaker?
If so, how does a typical day in your professional life look like?
I am very proud to say that I am now a full-time watch artist, having begun as a fun hobby.
A typical day in my professional life now consists of communicating with clients, accounting, project planning, working on artwork, packaging
and preparing them to be shipped to their new owners
all of which I’ll delegate to you at aBlogtoWatch from now on. I guess I’m my own PR rep, accountant, and manager all rolled into one. 카지노사이트
aBlogtoWatch: We’ve heard you’ve done some cool collaborations with some major brands.
Would you mind saying a few words about your experiences?
Throughout this journey, I have been fortunate to meet and work with some incredible brands, including IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Casio, Brabus, Watches of Switzerland
and others. I get to illustrate and participate in some of the development processes of their upcoming collections and projects
which is an incredible opportunity for a watch enthusiast like myself.
It was also interesting to meet the teams behind these brands who share my enthusiasm for horology and art.
My most recent collaboration was with IWC, where I had the honor of doing a live drawing.
aBlogtoWatch: What was the most difficult aspect of creating your watch illustrations?
The most difficult aspect would undoubtedly be achieving the distinct color and texture of some watch designs.
The texture of case and movement materials, for example, or the patina and wear of vintage pieces
or the true effects of precious stones. Because I primarily use marker pens for my pieces, some mistakes are irreversible and will necessitate discarding them and starting over.
This is likely an area where I can improve, but every time I see the results, I feel a sense of accomplishment and joy.
aBlogtoWatch: What types of watches inspire you the most? What is the backstory behind your current favorite piece?
As a watchmaker, I am inspired by watches that use a variety of materials and color combinations.
I think these are interesting but difficult references to illustrate. The Grand Seiko Masterpiece line (SBGD205, SBGD207, and SBGD209)
is my current favorite because the level of detail and design is incredible, and the colorful precious stones remind me of my previous profession
at the design studio working with pieces of jewelry, where I had my first introduction to watches.
aBlogtoWatch: What might we at any point anticipate from you later on?
I couldn’t want anything more than to continue doing what I’m doing and carry nonstop
augmentations of new fine art to the aBlogtoWatch Store and your crowd.
I couldn’t want anything more than to compose my absolute first book
a chronicle of the multitude of various brands and watches I have chipped away at.
I’m likewise wanting to one day plan my own watch or team up on a watch plan.
