Some time ago I drew these Harry Potter characters, but I don’t think I ever put them all on Tumblr in one big thing, just a few here and there and a photo of the paper figures that I made from them.
With these drawings, I was trying to follow the physical descriptions given in the books while diverging as much as possible from the movie and original illustration versions. With the three main kids, I don’t think I did much by way of giving any of them a new spin - something I might try to rectify some time down the road - but I had fun drawing all of them, and that’s the important thing, ain’t it?
A sketchbook page from last week; an evening at the Zetter Townhouse Bar in London, and a pretty afternoon on a train through Scotland to Leuchars.
I cheaped-out on my sketchbook for this past trip and skimped on the paper, so all the pages from my trip are super crowded like this, which irritated me at first, but now I sort of like the odd little scraps of images. Sometimes economy can lead to luck and improvisation.
Fake Fun Facts are fun.
Here’s our "Kisshearter" campaign for Love & Monsters, a comics and music anthology that makes a great Valentine’s Day gift for that special lover in your life!
The other image in this photoset is an awesome drawing by Joe Badon, inspired by a couple of the Love & Monsters characters. Joe has his own Kickstarter campaign going on right now for a comics anthology called Memoirs of the Mysterious.
Holy Crap the Kickstarter is funded and I want to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of you who helped the project.
Whether you reblogged a post or backed the project. I’m very grateful to all of you for your help and support over the last 30 days.
