Ben McSweeney or Inkthinker is an illustrator and animator involved in a number of Brandon Sanderson's works.
He illustrated Shallan's sketchbook in The Way of Kings, Words of Radiance, Oathbringer, and Rhythm of War, and he created concept art which ultimately led to the Shattered Plains to be moved from Yolen to Roshar. He also created the broadsheet for The Alloy of Law and the Elendel Daily. For each story in Arcanum Unbounded he made a full-page illustration. He also worked on the map and interior illustrations in The Rithmatist.
