Hans Helweg


The widow of Illustrator Hans Helweg, Sue Bell has kindly donated his easel, brushes and other art materials to the Illustration course. Hans was a brilliant Illustrator who is most famous for his work with Paddington Bear creator Michael Bond on his Olga da Polga books. Hans also illustrated many book covers for Pan in the early 1960's and his artwork is still much collected by fans of the English/European 'pulp fiction' scene. I will be writing more about Hans later in the year.
