We’ve got two pics of J.K. Rowling’s appearance at the National Portrait Gallery in London for you, as well as a larger shot of the art itself:

The portrait

The painting is by artist Stuart Pearson. Jo said of the portrait:

“…I love it. I have to say it is quite unnerving to see yourself presented like this and to stand here and recognise it as me,” the author said at the ceremony in central London…But this shows more of me than any photo has ever shown. Stuart and I had the most incredible laughs doing this and of course I am delighted and honoured to be here in the National Portrait Gallery Collection.”
