Harry Potter Tribute Show: Introduction to the Owlry


I am definitely a Potter fan. When the nice folks at Gallery Nucleus asked me if I would be interested in participating in a Harry Potter Tribute Show that would take place one week before the final film opened, I must confess that I had to suppress a squeal of joy. It was really difficult for me to choose what to illustrate, but in the end there were two moments that I decided to try to capture.


This first piece is my take on little Harry introducing his Snowy Owl, Hedwig, to the Owlry at Hogwarts. I thought it would be fun to illustrate these two unlikely friends, as well as all of the different owl personalities that shuttle messages to and from Hogwarts.


The Harry Potter Tribute Show opens this Saturday, July 9th at 7pm at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. You can see all of the crazy show details right here!


I have one more Potter piece that I will post before the show. Have a great week, and I hope to see you on Saturday!
