J.K. Rowling: A Sketching Sensation

Is there anything she can’t do?! J.K. Rowling continues to wow us, and this time it’s with drawings. Rowling’s sketches for Harry Potter have surfaced, and frankly, they’re amazing. Casting for the film series did a spectacular job! Take a look at some of them below:

Even more images have appeared on Pottermore. The sketches only prove how great Rowling is at what she does. Her imagination and the world she has created are shown with great detail, and the characters she has brought to life through writing come even more alive in her drawings.  

She sketched these in the 90’s, but who would have known? You’d think she saw the film and then drew the cast. These drawings are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the extensive knowledge of Rowling’s world and I hope we get more soon! Rowling continues to surprise us.
