Thanks for the heads up RJ!
SO EXCITED! Yessss! Nothing interesting (…except PotterCast once every few years… wah wah wah) comes to DC!
Aw man, I wish I knew this sooner so that I could go. :(
my favourite potter book covers have to be the UK adult version. Though I only have the children version at the moment
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.
good for her!!! she is a wonderful artist
Is the picture for this article the Sorcerer’s Stone cover?
I love her work!
I f you live in DC go and enjoy the show!
everyone in dc enjoy lucky gits pouting:(
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.
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. xD
Wish I lived up there… I would totally go!
wish I could go. i live 3 hours away. and it starts in an hour id never get there.
She deserves the recognition.
