Potter Commission


I was recently commissioned by my pal and fellow Improper Booksian Sara Dunkerton to draw her and her boyfriend Dan as Hogwarts students! The piece was a birthday present for Dan and forms part of a series of themed portraits she will be collecting by various artists over time. I'm so happy she thought of me for the Hogwarts-themed one! If you know me, you know I love all things Potter!

I was told that she was Hufflepuff, Dan was Gryffindor and that if he could have any animal it would be a snowy owl (classic). These were the only specifications so I enjoyed having the freedom to decide on the rest of the drawing. Sara LOVES rats and has some herself, so I decided to incorporate a rattie in there too, in the form of a Patronus. Sara's new colourful hair was also extra fun to draw!

If you or someone you know might enjoy a potter portrait like this, I'd be happy to make one for you too! Get in touch :)
