Harry Potter will reappear later this year in the final book of the series. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows should be a most interesting read, its conclusion no doubt mourned by millions!I've really enjoyed the whole saga, not least the indulging of my inner child!

The above piece was completed late last year. It is pencil and acrylic on card, size A4. Bit of an experiment in style. I've been influenced by Albrecht Durer and Leonardo da Vinci, particularly their beautiful studies of human and animal anatomy. I love the contrast between the pencil, the lighter background and the white pencil highlights, which bring the whole thing to life. Adding the highlights is my favourite and final part of any picture I produce in this medium.
