Glacial: Behind the Design with Artist Ben Goymour

Glacial: Behind the Design with Artist Ben Goymour

We had a chat with artist, Ben Goymour, the creator of our brand new Glacial design. Find out his inspiration and the story behind his artwork below. 

What was your inspiration for Glacial?

I started painting animals like this about 2 years ago, I got drawn the animals that had lots of character as that was what I focused on creating, big cats and apes were the main things I wanted to paint. The gorilla I love as they are such powerful yet charismatic creatures and that's what I tried to capture with this piece of work.

How did you originally get into art and what inspired you to create?

I got into art by accident really, I wanted a picture of one of our favourite mountains from the Lake District (our favourite place).We wanted this in our front room to be really special, we went to some galleries up there and started searching for what we had in mind, but found two problems. A.) We couldn't find anything even close to what we wanted, and B.) We really couldn't afford them.

This got me thinking I would try and create something myself, I had never painted but always new I was fairly handy. I started playing around and within only a few weeks I started to get quite good, much to my surprise, and the rest just escalated from there.

What are your favourite creative methods when designing a new piece?

Creating and painting are kind of different, painting is the easy bit and for which I use oil paints, brushes, pallet knifes, scrapers and anything I can lay my hands on to make the effect I require.

The creating process starts in my head, I spend days ,weeks and months working stuff out in my head, going through a problem solving process off what will work and what won't. Once I feel I'm somewhere near then I will start to sketch out rough designs to see if I'm going in the right direction.

Once I'm nearly there only then will I get the brush out, then the execution of the painting is the easy bit, it's the long creating process in the mind that can really take the time. 

What motivates you to create and keep creating?

Motivation to paint comes from that constant urge to paint or create something stunning that stops people in their tracks.I think creating new work in a new style constantly really keeps me excited and hungry for more.

Where do you see your art going in the future?

In the future is a hard question but I guess I would like to be more widely known across the board and help to inspire people to create whatever they feel is inside them. Painting has been an amazing gift for me in helping with life in general and becoming truly happy. I think to show people this and it help them how it has helped me can only be a good thing.

  • My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – silverbackgymwear.com – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like silverbackgymwear.com will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    You can make it super-simple for them to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket… thanks to Talk With Web Visitor.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know immediately – so you can talk to that lead immediately… without delay… BEFORE they head for those hills.

    CLICK HERE https://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Now it’s also true that when reaching out to hot leads, you MUST act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s what makes our new SMS Text With Lead feature so powerful… you’ve got their phone number, so now you can start a text message (SMS) conversation with them… so even if they don’t take you up on your offer right away, you continue to text them new offers, new content, and new reasons to do business with you.

    This could change everything for you and your business.

  • Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website silverbackgymwear.com…

    I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

    Like yours, many of them have great content.

    But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

    I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

    Here’s a solution for you…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE http://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

    Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

  • Hey, this is Eric and I ran across silverbackgymwear.com a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://boostleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.
