“I finally understood that great works don’t begin as great works. They begin as rough ideas. I realized that creation is a process. I thought if I can understand the first step I can learn the next step. I was fully aware that I had much to learn, but I was confident that I could learn it.

Here’s a rough sketch of my own. This is the sketch that later became the cover for The Bad Beginning

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: Gammell vs Helquist

A few examples (since i can only fit 10) comparing the illustrations of Gammell and Helquist in the 30th Anniversary edition of “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”

1) Title Page

2) The Walk

3) The Haunted House

4) The Red Spot

5) Harold

I feel like the older illustrations were what made the stories even scarier.
