Wee Harry’s made a friend! Since he’s a Parselmouth and speaks Parseltongue, the language of snakes, he had no problem convincing this one that he’s not lunch.

Cuter than a teacup pig, wee Harry Potter is just hanging out in his commemorative Quidditch World Cup teacup. For all that they have magic, there’s a shocking lack of tiny Potter characters running around being adorable. Shocking.

I’ve done so many paintings of tentacles rising up from mysterious depths that I thought it might be fun to do a set striving for the heights instead. These pale, half-translucent tentacles are reaching toward an errant Golden Snitch, and disrupting someone’s game of Quidditch.
If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Just ask Harry Potter.
Seekers, 4″x8″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper.
Above, you can see the Golden Snitch next to an ordinary dime for scale. Tiny, tiny scale. Below, for a different sort of scale, I’ve temporarily put the painting in a standard 8″x10″ frame so you can imagine how it would fit into your home. Because it totally would fit into your home. I mean, doesn’t everyone need tentacles?

My house guest has flown back to DC, and I’ve got one more day of vacation plans before it’s back to the grind. Actually there’ll be a little grind today, since I’ve got a teleclass, but we’re pretending that’s just not the case at the moment. Much like how we’re pretending that the above Snitch is actually round.
Also, my cats say hi, and want you to know that I’m never allowed to leave the house again.

Another little sketch that went as a gift with some art. Harry always was fascinated with magic, and I like his expression, leaning back and admiring his Lumos.

Is it James Potter and little Harry, or grown-up Harry and little James Sirius? In my mind it’s a little of both, James and Harry sharing a moment of fatherly love from one generation to the next. I even gave them Gryffindor-themed colors, with warm baby yellow and bright fatherly red.
I have to admit, my favorite part about drawing Harry Potter is the hair, which is always a fun, scribbly mess. Baby hair is just a little different, wispier and more staticky while being just as much of a mess as dad’s infamous mop.
Potterly Love, 5″x7″ pen and ink and Copic markers on paper.

Yes, that is a dime off in the distance there. Yes, they are just that wee. Somehow, I forget every time just how small they’re going to get! I have no idea what I’ll do with these, possibly a random giveaway. I have jump rings for them (which are ginormous compared to the actual charms) but it’s much easier to photograph them flat without.
Here you can see them before shrinking, next to a pair of scissors for relative scale. Their colors are also less intense, since they get much more pigment-dense when the material they’re on shrinks.
And then a clearer shot of the after, with the same pair of scissors and the additional dime for reference. SO WEE.
