Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them

A long while back (perhaps a year or two?), I had a reader ask me whether I was intending to one day post pages for the Harry Potter companion books – Fantastic Beasts, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. When I was asked the question, I looked through my art collection and thought there was no way I would be able to collect enough art, and answered the question accordingly.

A month or so ago, however, I was thinking about Fantastic Beasts, and decided to start searching around to see if there might be any artwork out there that I’d simply overlooked. I was surprised and so pleased to discover that well beyond the usual Harry Potter fan art community, there are a number of artists out there who have drawn exclusively the Fantastic Beasts. I went on another art collecting spree, and the result is, I think, a beautiful page of artwork, and a book that lends itself to more insights than I once imagined. So for anybody out there who’s been longing for another new chapter page – here it is! Much more work than the old ones, but I couldn’t be happier with the result. And I hope you feel the same.

Of course, this also means we have several new artists to add to our ranks – so a very warm welcome to Juan Ruben Juarez M., Laura Williams (aka Eudocia), Stephanie Schmidt, and C.W. Bexiga!

  1. :D First comment! Would you believe it, about two hours ago I read that exact comment where somebody asked if there would be a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! I’m actually reading the Companion at the moment, because I found out about it only a few days ago, and I’m on Deathly Hallows. So I’m so excited about this! Can’t wait! ;)
