Product Information

Description

Back in 2001 eight artists including myself were commissioned to illustrate 24 unique Harry Potter: Chocolate Frog, lenticular (hologram-like) cards.

This was a very different sort of job wherein we were asked to paint somewhat of an animated movement using about three shifts in the pose of the character. Doing this was the closest I’ve come to animating, and I want to keep it that way. 🙂

The preliminary sketches were composited to show movement to then be approved by the art director at Wizards all the way up to JK Rowling. I recall receiving an email after the art director had her big meeting with Warner Brothers and JK Rowling. Our AD was on cloud nine because apparently all the illustrations were “approved with flying colors” and we’d “knocked it out of the park”… and apparently that that never happened.

P.S. I do still have a few of the original art pieces. So if these obscure paintings in Harry Potter history interest you, send me a message.
