Fan Art of the Week: ‘Chamber of Secrets’
This week’s submission is from MuggleNet fan Olivea and is titled ‘Chamber of Secrets.’ From the artist, “I am a huge Bellatrix fan. However, I drew this picture of the ‘Chamber of Secrets’ book cover on a quiet day during a recent weekend at home in Northern Wisconsin. I am 13 years old (as of last week).”
Noah’s Notes: Like Olivea, many fans (from the United States at least) have sent in artwork that captures the cover work of Mary GrandPre. This was done in simple crayon, but undoubtedly the process of reconstructing the book cover was long and careful work. I’m especially impressed with Olivea’s drawing of Fawkes; she shades within each section of wing to present the differing textures, as well the places where the feathers are flecked by light. Great job Olivea and Happy Birthday!
