Hi! I’m Ben Ruppert, also known as Sapper-Spy. I’m a US Army veteran who served as a combat engineer and a military intelligence collector/analyst. But I’m more than that. I’m a family man, happily married to my wife Angel. I’m a Christian metalhead, comic book nerd, self taught graphic media artist, and quite casual gamer.

I’ve worked hard to provide excellent work for my customers, and my work has actually gone farther than I’d ever expect. From the hands of many to the halls of DC, and even in Hollywood.
