Illustrator: Mary GrandPre

Mary GrandPre has been illustrating Harry Potter since he was 11 years old.
"It's a challenge to take a character ... and make sure he ages correctly and make sure he looks like he would look if he were to get a year older," she told The Associated Press. "I feel like I'm his mom, I comb his hair or I mess it up, I make sure he looks good before he goes out the door."
This AP story has wonderful descriptions of how she creates her illustrations and her feelings as the series winds towards the end.
