Illustrator and author - Ben Galbraith
Gisborne-based Ben Galbraith doesn't quite paint by numbers but by what he reads on the tube. That's because he's colour blind. Not that this ever stopped him from picking up the colours that he can't even see. He's the author and illustrator of award-winning children's book The Three Fishing Brothers Gruff, a project that launched his career almost six years ago, catching the eye of UK publishers. He talked to Sonia Sly.
