More artwork by Mary GrandPre, artist of the American Harry Potter covers.
I love her previous covers, and I can’t wait to see her new ones.
Mary GrandPre is one of the artists whose work inspired me to follow the path of being an illustrator in the first place.
Do you know that she didn’t want to get her image of the characters mixed up with the actors for the movies, so she didn’t see any of them until after the seventh book was published. THAT ladies, and gentlemen, is dedication.
Also, those third and fourth drawings have such beautiful color, movement, and atmosphere. I sort of want both as posters for my wall…
When I found out that she was an alum of MCAD I just about squealed in excitement.
Harry Potter is tired of you
One of the most exciting things about the films would be to see the cast throughout the seven films, and to see them grow throughout their years at Hogwarts. That may be a pipe dream, that may not be possible, but it would be, from a cinematic point of view, very exciting. You would actually see Harry Potter grow from an eleven year old into a seventeen year old.

THIS IS WHY HARRY POTTER IS ALWAYS RELEVANT.
He didn’t know what he was going to, but it had to be better than what he was leaving behind
