A Few Words from Mary Grand Pré"When I illustrate a cover or perhaps a book, I draw upon what the author tells me; that's how I see my responsibility as an illustrator. J. K. Rowling is genuinely descriptive in her writing--she offers an illustrator a lot to operate with. She tends to make it easy for me. The images just develop as I sketch and retrace until it feels correct and matches her vision. Each story is packed total of rich visual descriptions of the atmosphere, the mood, the setting, and all the different creatures and individuals."Check out more Harry Potter art from illustrator Mary Grand Pré.
