Expelliarmus! The intrepid story book heroes Harry Potter and Hermione Granger make their way into the Shrieking Shack to rescue their friend Ron Weasley. In there they meet with the terrifying escaped convict, Sirius Black. This image is inspired by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It is rendered and created Mary GrandPré who illustrated all of the American editions of the Harry Potter book series.
About the artist:
Mary GrandPré is an American illustrator with a long career in advertisement, magazines, and books, most notably JK Rowling's Harry Potter series. She has also dabbled in some filmwork creating backdrops for DreamWork's Antz movie. To create the illustrations for the Harry Potter books, she was given the manuscript of the book long before its official book release. She would read through the manuscript and highlight scenes she felt would look well visually. Those images were all send to the editor who chose which ones to include in the book. After the book series ended, GrandPré released many of the Harry Potter illustrations that did not make the cut for the book print.
