Upcoming Events!

High 5 CAI Annual Show-Opening night, Friday, May 19th, 2009
The Colorado Alliance of Illustrators has partnered with Ink Lounge Gallery to put together their annual show. This year, yours truly, will exhibit my "Marketing" cartoon, as well as pieces from the latest children's book, jointly illustrated by my talented wife Cherish Flieder. The only jury in this show are you, the enthusiastic public, so feel free to come in numbers and stuff the ballot on my behalf!

You will also enjoy the talented works of some of my other great friends, among them Stan Yan, Che Rippinger and Steve Schader.

Join Me At La Piazza Dell Arte!

This year I will be participating in the La Piazza Dell Arte on Larimer Square, June 06-07. This is a street painting festival where local artists come and create masterpieces on the street in chalks. As in previous years, I will be recreating a Norman Rockwell, one of my main influences as an artist. Come, meet your local Denver artists, take in the creative atmosphere and enjoy the festivities. I look forward to seeing you.

Yeah, so I bet everybody is wondering exactly WHERE Ink Lounge Gallery is. Sure, I beg you all to show up and then don't provide directions. My bad.

Ink Lounge Gallery is in Belmar in Lakewood. Block 07 Belmar
445 S. Saulsbury St., Studio H
Lakewood, CO 80226. More information on the show can be achieved by going to www.allianceofillustrators.org.

"Benjamin is a talented illustrator and insightful cartoonist, too. A great member of the Colorado Alliance of Illustrators for many years now, in addition to producing beautiful children's books and paintings with also extremely multi-talented wife Cherish. I look forward to seeing more politixcartoons at the .com and in papers and magazines!"

"Benjamin Hummel possesses the single most important characteristic required of an editorial cartoonist: a passion for the issues. His point of view is never in doubt. When you add a sense of humor, a feel for irony and fine-tuned art skills, you have here a cartoonist worth your attention."

--Mike Keefe, Denver Post Cartoonist

"Finally, an editorial cartoonist who leans right, lives his faith, sees the funny side of politics, and can draw. Conservatives are going to like Ben's pen."

-- John Andrews
