I hope they somehow make these illustrations available for anyone – maybe in a calendar or something.

I wish I had the money to get one! :(

I hope they make them available too. Maybe if enough people complain, they will? LOL

It is fantastic that she has created these works for such a good cause. It must have taken a lot of effort on her part to create all of this art.

Needless to say, I do hope that we are able to view at least some of what she did. I certainly do enjoy the art she has conceived for the series.

Oh wow, I think her art is fantastic! I hope they’ll make them available to the general public. . . maybe a postcard book? Just like JKR made Beedle public in an accessible way. . . :D

hm the prices really aren’t that bad considering who they’re coming from. She really has a knack for pastels, they’re not very easy to use.
