"A CHRISTMAS CAROL"









"A Christmas Carol" is finally here. I'll be signing books at Books of Wonder on November 28.
Maybe I'll see some of you there. Here's some of my favorite art from the book.

  3. I really like that second picture! The tree man's cool! Did you hide any Baudelaires in the crowds?

  4. Gorgeous! Mr. Helquist you've done it again. I particularly like the Ghost of Christmas Past (I assume that's who the girl in the bottom picture is) Really stunning, well done.

  5. Aloha Brett!

    Your work is absolutely stunning! My children love your books. I'm a friend from your High School days - Mountain View C/O '84 - Lanett Harmon. Is there any way I can contact you for an interview (my son is going for his third round at National History Day and chose "comics" as his focus) He is very motivated by your story and talent. You are truly an inspiration!! Much Aloha from Hawaii!

  7. Lanett, I'd be happy to do an interview, let me know how to contact you.

    Andy, you wondered if the pictures are watercolor. They are arcrylic and oil.

  8. Aloha again! I can be reached on facebook or by email (nettski6@hotmail.com), too bad we are on opposite sides of the continent or we'd stop by! Thanks for taking the time!! Lanett

  12. I am really excited that I found your blog!!!

    You are amazing...I became a fan of your illo-style in Lemony Snicket's series...the works there are way cool and orignal.

    Great works on this blog too. I will keep watching. I dream of becoming a writer and illustrator and you're a true inspiration!

  13. This book is beautiful. Well, all of your work is, but I think Dickens would truly appreciate these especially.

  14. I know I'm late to the party, but I just discovered this book. I loved it, so I used it as the culminating review for the Twelve Reviews of Christmas on my children's book review blog!
