His mass-market cover for Stephen Kings The Stand was awarded Cover of the Year by Marketing Bestsellers in 1980, and he has a numerous amount of other awards and commendations. Brautigam's mesmerizing color work redefined paperback and hardcover jacket art. In addition, he excelled in portraits, record sleeves, and information graphics.

More than thirty years later, his original method is still the archetype upon which vast amounts of contemporary illustrations are based.
