Illustrator Ben Tegel was born and raised in St. Louis. He studied painting at Washington University and, following graduation, left for Los Angeles to start a rock n’ roll band. Currently he illustrates for books and magazines (Flaunt, Beautiful/Decay), for music venues (House of Blues, Viper Room), for T-shirts (Vans, Hello Minor, B/D Apparel, Das Monk), and for himself. He lives in the Brookside area of L.A. with his wife, infant daughter, and two small dogs.

For the third issue of The Rattling Wall, Tegel created eighteen new illustrations using India ink and watercolor washes of Payne’s gray. The journal’s inside covers feature preliminary drawings and reference sketches. The outside cover artwork is an original watercolor piece.

Opening night reception! New artwork, book signing, readings,
