Adventures in Ink with Stephen Hesselman

By

If you were at Hutchmoot this year, I hope you had time to appreciate the wealth of talented illustrators in attendance. Every year there seems to be a couple more of these guys sitting at the table drawing and painting and being awesome. 

This year, Stephen Hesselman (a fine illustrator himself) asked each of them to draw something that he could then ink, and the result is an awesome snapshot of the Hutchmoot cadre of illustrators.

But it didn’t stop there. After Hutchmoot ended, Stephen continued to solicit art from friends and attendees he met over the weekend and apply his ink to their work.

I love Stephen’s selflessness in this little project of his. He put a lot of work into shining the spotlight on others and the results are fantastic. Take a look for yourself.
