Artist Scott Benner describes this early work as experimental, referring particularly to the inclusion of lightning bolts and flames. Look closely to find what he calls “hidden gags” in the artwork.

"I shouldn’t be doing it to try to sell pictures. I should be doing what inspires me. That’s where the real roots are—where the good stuff comes from."
Scott Benner experiences cluster headaches and bouts of confusion as a result of Horner's syndrome, which he developed in 2012. After a series of events left him without a home and without a job, Scott found solace in his art and saw that others were also touched by his work. After meeting with Liz Powers in 2014, he began selling his creations via ArtLifting.com and has since found housing.
Scott's portfolio encompasses over 40 years of practice, patience, and perseverance. His preferred mode of creation utilizes fine line pen and ink, a medium he enjoys for "the contrast and the sharp, crisp lines." His body of work is the result of thousands of hours of dedication, with some pieces, such as the grandiose Before Hand After Hand, taking upwards of 1,000 hours or more.
