Thank you :) they're such a little happy family. It's almost hard to believe Lily and James will be killed.

I love this! The details are amazing... I love the crossing out of Neville's name and the fact that you remembered it was Halloween. It's beautiful work, really.

Thank you,
but Neville's name isn't really crossed out, just not as clear as Harry's name, Hagrid explains Harry's name has been down for Hogwarts since he was born, so I figured Neville's name should be there as well.

Only since this is about Harry and not Neville I sort of tried to keep Neville's name vague. Sorry if it isn't very clear.

Awwww!

I just adore huggable little Harry, with his big sweater, messy hair, rosy cheeks and button nose. He's looking up at gentle giant Hagrid with a wonder and innocence that belies the difficult path his life has taken, and will take.

I love your style — so well done!!

Oh, mnem, it's lovely! The colors are amazing, of course. I think this may be one of your greatest pieces yet, right up there with your Sirius one on the bike! Amazing use of watercolors, it's delicate and poignant, an excellent play with the transluscence! Amazing detail! Oh, how I love you! :D

Your Hagrid is wonderful (his nose!) - and Harry sweet as always. The composition is nice, and gives a real sense of storytelling.

I also love Fawkes being perched on Dumbledore's hat, though I do think the hat must be made of very sturdy stuff in order for that to be possible ;). But I will gladly suspend my disbelief :D.

This is fantastic. I love the Harry and Hagrid portion. Hagrid looks like he wants to cry and Harry looks so young and innocent. Beautiful.

This is the sweetest drawing you've ever done, in my opinion. I love how cute Harry looks. I love the background with the whole family. I especially love the Hogwarts crest at the back with the House animals crawling around.

I LOVE Harry's upper lip. That little innocent thing, and how he's looking up at this big giant of a man and not showing the least bit of feart.

Though I'm a bit confused as to who the red-haird woman and the man are... James and Lily? With Harry's younger brother?? Ghosts? They're beautiful, proud parents.

My eyes always go back to Harry though. :)

It's from Harry Potter and the Philopher's Stone:

In the book Hagrid brings Harry his lettre for Hogwarts, but Harry has never heard of Hogwarts, Voldemort, the wizarding world in general or why his parents died. So Hagrid starts explaining and that's what I tried to picture: the story coming to life.

Just out of curiosity, didn't you read the books?

That is just the most loveable, adorable little Harry. I love all of it, especially Lily and James and baby Harry.

Oh my gosh I love this...I think this might be my favorite piece of yours ever. Little Harry is just the cutest thing ever, and Hagrid looks great: like someone who could be this big jolly giant but is right now so sad as he has to tell Harry all the things he doesn't know..and Dumbledore with Fawkes on his hat! That's so funny. James and Lily look so lovely and happy, I want to beat Voldemort away from their door!

AH. I can't even - this - so beautiful.

I can't pick which bit is my favorite. Hagrid's hands wrapped around his mug, his eyes, itty bitty Harry, Fawkes on DD's hat.. I love everything.
