Brazilian illustrator Gabriel Picolo is back with a series of his signature mixed media illustrations featuring Harry Potter elements.
The talented, young artist who brought us “365 Days of Doodle” (which were hardly doodles, by the way—they're freaking good) hasn't slowed down one bit with his signature mixed media illustration mini series. He happens to be working on everybody's childhood favourite, Harry Potter at the moment. Gabriel has been experimenting with both watercolour and digital arts and from the looks of it, it's turning out spectacularly!
"Trust me, I know what I'm doing. . . or at least, Felix does."
“Ooh, you look much tastier than Crabbe and Goyle, Harry,” said Hermione, before catching sight of Ron’s raised eyebrows, blushing slightly, and saying, “Oh, you know what I mean — Goyle’s potion looked like bogies.”
“The mind is not a book to be opened at will and examined at leisure.” – Severus Snape
"Mandrake, or Mandragora, is a powerful restorative... It is used to return people who have been transfigured or cursed to their original state.. The cry of the Mandrake is fatal to anyone who hears it."
‘You’re saying it wrong,’ Harry heard Hermione snap. ‘It’s Wing-GAR-dium Levi-O-sa, make the “gar” nice and long.’
‘You do it, then, if you’re so clever,’ Ron snarled.
Hermione rolled up the sleeves of her gown, flicked her wand and said, ‘Wingardium Leviosa!’
Their feather rose off the desk and hovered about four feet above their heads.
"Fascinating creatures, phoenixes. Their tears have healing powers, they make highly faithful pets."—Albus Dumbledore
"There was a terrible snarling noise. Lupin's head was lengthening. So was his body. His shoulders were hunching. Hair was sprouting visibly on his face and hands, which were curling into clawed paws."
“Harry now carried a large cage that held a beautiful snowy owl, fast asleep with her head under her wing.”
"And out of the end of his wand burst, not a shapeless cloud of mist, but a blinding, dazzling, silver animal. He screwed up his eyes, trying to see what it was. It looked like a horse. It was galloping silently away from him, across the black surface of the lake. He saw it lower its head and charge at the swarming dementors.... "
"Not pleasant. And there's no counter curse. There's no blocking it. Only one known person has ever survived it, and he's sitting right in front of me."
“To Harry James Potter, I leave the Snitch he caught in his first Quidditch match at Hogwarts, as a reminder of the rewards of perseverance and skill.”
