My friend Phoebe Wahl has convinced me to join her in an effort to draw one Harry Potter character every day until we run out…which basically means I’ll be drawing a Harry Potter character every day until I’m eligible to receive Social Security checks. This first #hpaday is Hedwig, of course.
Tomorrow’s character’s name starts with an “L.” Can you guess who it is?
I made my first interlocking pattern design in order to enter this week’s beetle-themed contest on Spoonflower.com. If you have a moment, I’d really appreciate it if you would take the time to vote for my work here! I could really use those Spoondollars for making products this upcoming holiday season. Thanks!
Hi, you guys! Light Grey Art Lab has a show up in their gallery right now! The show is called, “Stacks,” and it features zines made by 60 international artists, me included! My zine is a brief illustrated overview of the television, films, and music that made 1985 truly outrageous! To get a limited edition, signed copy (ONLY $12!!!), go to the LGAL shop.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY! Here’s an oldie but a goodie, an illustration I did back in college of every. single. gift. Harry receives throughout the series. Of course the greatest gift of all is that time he got to snog Ginny for about 5 seconds before Ron burst in like a big ol’ douche. Good going, Ron.
Merlin’s Beard! I sure am excited to share the zine I created for Light Grey Art Lab's Stacks exhibition, a collection of zines created to commemorate each of the past 30 years! I was given the year 2007, so my mind immediately went to Harry Potter (but then, whenever does it not?). It is timely that I’m sharing this with you today, because it was on this exact date in 2007 that the final Harry Potter book was released to eager wizards and muggles worldwide.
I considered approaching this, my first ever zine, in a number of ways. I wanted to make something that could be interactive in some way, so I came up with the idea of an activity book. It was fun to include little moments and details that weren’t included in the movies and to make the characters look the way I think they look based on the canon, rather than the movie version. I’m pretty sure both hardcore Pottheads and casual fans alike will have fun filling this out! I’ve included some of my favorite pages here and a gif that shows all the spreads.
This zine will be sold in person at Light Grey Art Lab and on Light Grey’s online shop starting August 1st. They’re a very limited edition so if you want one, get on it quick!
