Sunday Sketches -- A Series of Unfortunate Drawings*

At last, here is the culmination of several weeks' worth of Sunday Sketches!  As you  may recall, J and I recently finished re-reading Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events in its entirety (including The Unauthorized Autobiography and The Beatrice Letters), so every Sunday for the past couple of months I did a drawing for each of the books I had finished that week.  Now I have finally compiled them into one massive collage, showing here (I would click on it to view it bigger for the full effect, there's kind of a lot to look at):

So they aren't all the major scenes or illustrations of the turning points in each book, but they were the scenes that stood out to me for whatever reason when I sat down to draw.  Fans will hopefully recognize which ones go with which books!  (Hint:  They go more or less in order clockwise.)  It was fun to see where I could fit in a few other characters here and there, besides just those dear Baudelaires.

I actually did a few for Book the Thirteenth, and I couldn't decide which to put in the collage, so, since I like this one too, I'll add it as a P.S.

* Or, Drawings of Unfortunate Events.


  1. I love them! I had to zoom in extra extra close to see all the finer details. Sunny is adorable! I think my favorite is Chabo the wolf baby, or the Hostile Hospital. Now read Harry Potter again, and draw lots of pictures from those. :)

  2. My favorite is the swinging ladder, probably because of the perspective... all of them are incredible, though! Thanks for the post!
