There is going to be an awesome reception with contests for best dressed and lots of fun events like snitch seeking competions, butter beer, and trivia contests.
|Whomping Willow, 6.5 x 9 inches, Gouache & Ink on paper, 2011|
So it's no secret that I love planty-leafy-things, and something that I loved about the books was all the unusual plants that J.K. Rowling brought to life. The crying mandrake roots, Devils Snare that almost got the best of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, not to mention Gillyweed that allows you to breath underwater. Here I illustrated an iconic Harry Potter plant the Whomping Willow, which would batter anyone who came closer to it but was ever so useful Lupin.
|Hagrid & Fang, 4.75 x 3.75 inches, Gouache & Ink on paper, 2011|
This piece was what I imagined Hagrid and Fang doing after an eventful day (Buckbeak the hippogriff and Sirius Black being freed). Nothing like taking a well earned break with some butterbeer and your faithful companion by your side.
