Nothing interesting (...except PotterCast once every few years... wah wah wah) comes to DC!Avatar ImageMera004 says: Aw man, I wish I knew this sooner so that I could go. :( Avatar Imagesianletley says: my favourite potter book covers have to be the UK adult version. Though I only have the children version at the moment Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Although i quite admire her artwork i'm still not 100% convinced about her drawing abilities especially when it comes to the cover of GOF. The UK versions are full of details in comparison to her cover art.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Hmmmmm.Avatar ImageMorgana_Black says: good for her!!! she is a wonderful artistAvatar Imagelupinwandcaster says: Is the picture for this article the Sorcerer's Stone cover?Avatar ImageLulaL says: I love her work!Avatar ImageFresca says: I f you live in DC go and enjoy the show!Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: everyone in dc enjoy lucky gits pouting:(Avatar ImageSwedishSkinJer says: Mary has a fairly distinct art style, and I love what she did with the universe of Harry Potter. If you attend this event, I hope you enjoy. I've heard that she's an incredibly friendly woman.Avatar ImageOuroboros says: Not fair at all! If I would have known about this sooner, I so could have gone. Unfortunately, with the midnight release tomorrow, my mom is going to be tired enough without. The one time anything happens in DC, I swear, and I can't go. No one ever comes here. We're so unloved. xDAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Wish I lived up there... I would totally go! Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: wish I could go. i live 3 hours away. and it starts in an hour id never get there.Avatar Imagebiiigbob says: She deserves the recognition.Avatar ImageKateKintail says: Oohhh *sad face* I wish I'd heard about this earlier. I love her art.Avatar Imagekraamerxmich says: I really enjoy ms.Grandpre's artwork. its very modern, yet simple, and I think that gives quite a mystery to the style of the US books. I went to the Marie Grandpre Exhibition in Cedar Rapids, Iowa And it was fantastic! I think she really does have extreme talent, as there was much more work there than just her Harry Potter works...however i did tend to linger there MUCH longer!
