Ben Hatke is an artist and illustrator and a lover of G.K. Chesterton. He also happens to live down the street from Chesterton Press, and is a long-time friend of ours. We have always been a fan of Ben's artwork and have asked him to draw logos for us, sketch caricatures, and sometimes illustrate our books. We've also followed his career with alacrity as he's gone from illusttrating Regina's best-selling picture book Angel in the Waters to creating popular graphic novels like Zita the Spacegirl to illustrating Chesterton's novels like The Ball and the Cross. Since Ben works in different areas and is continuing to expand what he does, we found it easier just to give him a whole category on our website. It's the least we can do, Ben!
In 2016, Ben won the prestigious Eisner Award for Best Publication for Early Readers with his book Little Robot. Congratulations Ben!
