Harlequin Artists Part XIX - Roy Hewetson

There are going to be many posts about Harlequin artists who signed 2 1/2 times (300 vs. 120) as many covers as Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada's White Circle artists. With only 28 signed covers, the other large early Canadian paperback publisher, Export Publishing Enterprises, is a distant third. Here's one of the 34 Harlequin artists.

Roy Hewetson's signature can be seen on three Harlequin covers. Hewetson (? - ?) is briefly mentioned in the Index of Canadian Illustrators. Toronto City Directory listings are:

1949 - J. Roy artist
1950 - same, Sampson-Matthews
1951 - Roy J. artist, York Advertising Artists
1952 - Roy J. commercial artist
1953 - same
