Helena Hauss

Helena Hauss

Helena Hauss is a young Parisian Illustrator. She draws very large pieces of art (usually around 100cm x 70cm) that allow her to really go into details of hair, patterns and typography, all in BIC pens, with bright and contrasted colors. Her subjects portray situations you’d find looking at last night’s party photos. She has always had a big attraction for the color blue.

In the beginning I used to feel a little bit ashamed for using ball-point pens, like I didn’t feel like a real artist, but in more recent years I noticed it became kind of a trend and I got to embrace it, as it felt this was actually exactly the right time and the right place to do just that!
