J. K. Rowling has updated her website with information on the Sotheby's auction, and how her annotated copy of "Philosopher's Stone" raised £150,000 for English PEN and Lumos. She also added an image from the annotated copy, which features a drawing of Snape. The drawing is captioned with, "Snape, brooding on the unfairness of life." You can see it here on her site.

Very cool drawing by Jo of Severus, with the subtitle of: “Snape, brooding on the unfairness of life.” (V-J you should see this!)

She definitely gets the ‘greasy curtain of hair’ down, doesn’t she? I wish there were a way on her site to zoom the picture and see it in closer detail.

She’s a seriously good artist, I right clicked the picture and did ‘view image’ and it came up a bit bigger that way.

To clarify what I said before, I right clicked on the enlarged version of the picture and then it came up bigger.

Yes, I viewed the enlarged version, too, and went a step further… saved it to my own iPhotos album. ;-)
