MuggleNet and Harry Potter fan Chris Schweizer designed an incredible set of 55 Potter cartoon characters from the series and is allowing you, the fans, the ability to download the figures right here, print them out and assemble for your own collection.
Chris went to college at Murray State University, where he majored in art, then theater, then history, then English, then ended up back with art, earning a BFA in graphic design. He received his MFA in 2008, and began teaching at SCAD-Atlanta shortly afterwards as an instructor in the Sequential Art and Animation departments. He is now a full professor in the Sequential Art department, and is a proud member of both the National Cartoonist Society and the Baker Street Irregulars.
Chris shared some thoughts from his Harry Potter project stating, "Except in the cases of the Defense Against the Dark Arts professors, each of whom is depicted roughly during their tenure as a teacher, everyone is more or less circa the sixth Harry Potter novel, The Half Blood Prince. 'Cause I wanted all the kids in their school clothes. It's just more iconic to me. I tried to stay away from the movie's visuals as much as possible, but was unable to do so in the case of Voldemort. The book's "red eyes" combined with the green of the Adava Kedavra curse made him look way too Christmasy, and the film design was so, so good. I gave him snake lips and longer fingers/toes, but otherwise it's pretty much the movie version. Likewise, Sirius Black has a mustache rather than a bear, another nod to an excellent film design decision."
This is certainly an incredible collection, and we thank Chris for submitting this to MuggleNet for our fans to enjoy!
