Description : Harry and Dumbledore venture into the Dark Forest....
(a reworking of the Mary Grand Pre's excellent US Deluxe Edition cover art in my style, done for the BYU Bookstore 16 July 2005 party) - - At last we discover what part of the plot this is!

Wow, your drawings are awesome. Is it my imagination or I think Harry looks like you do? :P

Ha, yes, I'm afraid that sometimes while reading I find a little of myself in Harry, and it's reflected in my drawings, sometimes even subconsciously!

You know, this one's starting to grow on me, now that I have plenty of time to goof off... (mutta mutta dang spoilers mutta mutta, shuttin' down my stomping grounds... *sulk*)

One of your best works, I think! :D They both look excellent, especially Dumbledore!

Funny.. The cover for the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Special Edition has Harry and Dumbledore in the SAME EXACT POSE... hmm...

Erm... that was the point. There are three such reworkings in Drew's style of the official cover art here in the Gallery--it's all he had to go on at the time, since there wasn't much pre-release information about the books that wasn't spoilery.

Hmmm.... Are you accusing me of plagiarism? That would be quite foolish.

Thank you, TPK. Exactly right. I decided, since I was asked to do art for the party, and since I hadn't read the book yet, to do reworkings of the art that had been released in my own style.

It looks like it came from a coloring book!

Thanks Olivia! I'm going to print and colour it. :)

This actually was for a coloring contest, hence the coloring book nature.
