Just a quick picture post this Monday. This week’s theme for the 52-Week Illustration Challenge was “Ode to Favorite Children’s Book.” Like a lot of folks–especially those of us in our preteens or teens when the first book came out–the Harry Potter series was a big influence for me. I even stood in a few midnight release lines. Kids actually stood in line for hours, late at night, to read a book. Never before, and now with the instant delivery of ebooks, probably never again.
I’m not really super happy with how my golden snitch doodle turned out, but you draw, you learn.
Don’t forget, if you like, you can join in anytime.
Did you have a book that especially influenced you as a kid or teen?
