Professor McGonagall

I’ve grown up with Harry Potter, the books and the films, and this weekend I decided to draw a portrait of this badass witch!

Neville: Let me get this straight Professor, you’re actually giving us permission to do this?
McGonagall: That is correct, Longbottom.
Neville: To blow it up, boom?
McGonagall: BOOM!
Neville: Wicked!

Hand drawn, with a little watercolour.

 

 

Selkies

These are a series of illustrations I created in 2015, to accompany a short fairytale I had written about selkies. Selkies are a creature common in Scottish folklore, a kind of fairy that takes the form of a seal but likes to come ashore and shed her skin and dance, in the form of a beautiful woman.

Pencil drawings, scanned.
