Ben McSweeney or Inkthinker is an illustrator and animator involved in a number of Brandon Sanderson's works.

He has worked on The Stormlight Archive, Mistborn Eras 1 and 2, including the Elendel Broadsheets, the Mistborn Adventure Game, Arcanum Unbounded, Skyward, and The Rithmatist.

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.[1] He also created the broadsheet for The Alloy of Law and the Elendel Daily[2]. For each story in Arcanum Unbounded he made a full-page illustration. He also worked on the map and interior illustrations in The Rithmatist.
