For Galveston Art Bound 2016, my piece is focused on the "Harry Potter" series. I chose to focus on these books for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I think this series, more than any other books in recent years, has truly inspired a large number of young people to get excited about reading. Secondly, it strongly incorporates a theme that is central to a lot of my artwork, which is the inherent loss of innocence that accompanies coming of age.
I am using one of the Harry Potter books to create a mixed media piece that will consist of seven panels - one for each book. The attached image '5' shows one completed panel. These mosaic-inspired panels will be framed together and supplemented with a drawn overlay.
