a.k.a. Sorcerer's Stone in the U.S.
...for some reason...
the Scar - Ickle Harry ponders his scar in the bathroom mirror.
Frying Bacon - for Dudley's birthday breakfast. I was struck by
how ordinary Harry's world was at the beginning of the first
book ... you kind of forget that as the series goes on.
Budding Parseltongue - ... but of course we don't
know that when he's talking to the boa at the zoo.
I want my letter! - Harry demands his letter
back from Uncle Vernon – one of my very first Potter drawings
and still one of my favourites.
Dursleys - ... faced with an angry, magical giant.
Off - Hagrid and Harry leave the island, and Harry begins his adventure.
Oh, if he only knew what was in store...
Malfoy Gets Robed - At Madam Malkin's in
Diagon Alley, Malfoy imparts some 'wisdom' to Harry.
Food - Harry and Hagrid eat burgers at the station.
Hagrid's Precious - Oh Hagrid, you shouldn't
love that egg so much.
Norbert - A baby dragon, how adorable! What
could possibly go wrong?
Troll in the dungeons! - Quirrell raises
The Troll - that was in the dungeons. And then
Troublesome Turban - Quirrell adjusts his
turban after a certain argument overheard by Harry.
Mirror of Erised - Harry tries to get closer
to his parents (inspired more by the soundtrack to the movie than by
an actual part of the book)
Checkmate - Ron's view of the white chess
queen who knocks him out in the chess test.
Snap - Quirrell spins around from the
mirror and snaps to call up bindings for Harry.
Ow, my hands! - So it turns out Quirrell
can't touch Harry ... hmm, that's useful. (I learned after drawing this
that Harry's supposed to be in his robes, not pyjamas, but it's too
late now. Oh, and this is an earlier version of Quirrell.)
Aunt Petunia - The picture on the left is supposed to be her looking
artificially sweet while feeding baby Dudley, but she ended up just
Uncle Vernon - He looks so ... friendly.
Quirrell - Quirrell gets hold of the Stone ... Is it not a strange
fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt for such a small thing?
Such a little thing... Gratuitous Tolkien crossover, but it was
crying out to be done.
Totoro - There is a point at which Hagrid smiles down at Harry with
a wide grin ... Somehow what came into my mind was Totoro's smile. It
fits, oddly enough.
Lee Jordan - The mention of his dreadlocks put
me in mind of young Tarzan, and I have never quite been able to shake
that image. Fear the horribly-drawn tarantula!
