Fan Art of the Week: Hogwarts in pen
Hogwarts is an iconic symbol to Harry himself, as well as the fandom at large. It represents home and togetherness for all. Abhik, a fan from India, submitted to us a line drawing of Hogwarts Castle. Rather than going for the blending modes that can be achieved with a pencil, Abhik chose the more difficult medium of pen and ink.
Staff member’s notes: Choosing to use ink rather than a graphite pencil is a commendable decision. Not allowing yourself to make any mistakes is a daunting task for an artist, and Abhik made it look easy! The artist also cleverly decided to use an aged-looking paper, which added to the warmth that Hogwarts represents.
