Vellekoop is best known for his colorful illustration work, which always bears the mark of his sensible light touch. His equally elegant and heart-warming comics appear mostly in the pages of Drawn & Quarterly magazine, which has introduced many fine Canadian comix artists. Drawn & Quarterly also published an excellent anthology of Vellekoop's works called 'Vellevision'.
