The Atrocious Artist

This Week's Artist: Brett Helquist

If you're familiar with the Series of Unfortunate Events books, then you are most likely familiar with the work of Brett Helquist as well. Before Harper Collins put the obligatory images of the movie people on the covers of those books, they had the beautiful and stylistic illustrations of Helquist. His pencil renderings inside the books are just as exciting and witty, even. I really love the patterns of line he uses and envy his talent.

He used to have a portfolio of work on his agent's website, but it's not there anymore. Bummer! You can click on his name above to find out more about him, but it's mainly a site about Lemony Snicket and their books.
