New Art: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Here’s my final painting for the concept wrap-around cover of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Our final critique was today and overall was successful! I only really had to change the color of his hoodie. It was fun to return to the world of Harry Potter again, at least for a little bit!

In other news, if anyone is wondering about the status of my freelance career outside of personal work… it’s going pretty well. Starting my black and white drawings for the first few chapters of that project I mentioned a while ago (click here), which should be online soon and then I can share more about it! I am also working on a book cover for my former high school art teacher who is writing a middle grade fantasy series. And finally I have done two maps, one for Scholastic and the other for AAA Traveler magazine, which I can’t post yet. A few other cool things in the early stages that I can’t share yet either. Maps are slowly becoming another source of work for me, which is awesome! Really like doing them.

    Your illustration is good, but you have designated it for the wrong book. You have a Dementor shown lurking in the background, that makes this image for PRISONER OF AZKABAN.

    Hi Keith, thanks! That cloaked figure is meant to be Voldemort though. It’s not a scene from the book, just meant to convey the feeling of the first book.
