Why Our Features Have Such Nice Pictures

One thing you may have noticed about our featured posts is the absolutely stunning illustrations that accompany them. Those illustrations have been produced by Seth T. Hahne, who has been illustrating for us for the past year and a half. Basically, we offer him a draft or a pitch for an upcoming feature and give him somewhere between two days to a week to come up with something.

Today’s incredible illustration for “All Hallow’s Read: Why We Should Read Scary Stories for Halloween” marks Seth’s 100th illustration for us, capping off a host of stunning, bewildering, and at times rather uncomfortable works of art. You can see them all here, with the descriptions of how each illustration came to be. The whole thing is downright fascinating, if you ask me.

Oh, and if you didn’t know, Seth’s main thing is his fantastic graphic novel review site, GoodOkBad, where he writes top-notch reviews of graphic novels that interest him. Oh, and he says if they are Good, Ok, or Bad.

    Thanks for the words, Rich. All in all, it’s been a blast. Even when I have to come up with illustrations for Game of Thrones.

    One of the cool things about going back through the archives is seeing drawings that I’ve done and not really remembering exactly why I did certain things. Like the pixellated heart on the Occupy Wallstreet illustration. What’s up with that? No idea. So I get to try to interpret my own drawings just like everybody else♥
