Harry Potter



I wanted to try out more caricature. I had a lot of fun with the Serge Gainsbourg piece and I recently got the amazing Al Hirschfeld book "Hirschfeld on line" I can really recommend it. It is full of beautiful drawings, and there is a comment by Hirschfeld himself on almost every drawing, so you really get an insight into the world of that genius.

These are my sketches. You can see that I decided to add the magic pets later, I think they make the picture much more interesting.

  1. Great illustration. I love Hirschfeld too. If you can, track down a copy of the Line King DVD. It's a great documentary and has a lot of footage of him drawing (even on a Wacom tablet when he's well into his 90s!).

    If you like Hirschfeld I'd also recommend Nicholas Bentley http://www.fulltable.com/VTS/aoi/b/bentley/nb.htm and Robert Sherriffs

    Two of my favourites.
