Portrait of Lily Evans dedicated to @stickycolormilkshake. Thank you for sharing how much Harry Potter means to you. I can relate to your words <3

“When the first Harry Potter movie came out I was a tiny, scared child facing their parents yelling, trying to take care of her little sister. I remember one of the last times we had a nice time as a family was when we bought the Sorcerers stone in vhs, and when I had to left my dad house and move into grandmas, that movie meant the world to me. So I kept growing old and every time i was feeling sad or down or my depression got bad I tought of how incredibly strong and brave Harry was. I told myself, “hey, he faced all that stuff when he was 11 years old, you can do this, little one”. So he has always been my friend. Hermione was so smart and so caring, I learned to love myself through her hair and skin and books. And Ron was such a pure friend, he always had a way to make me laugh. I just felt so protected and loved when I read them or watched the movies. All of them, young, old, mistaken, scared, hurting and loving… they gave me a world of magic and wonders when all I had was fear and sadness. I could never put in words the feel of fullness and warm I get in my heart whenever I think of Harry. I would not be here if i didnt had him with me. The boy who lived saved me too.” by @stickycolormilkshake

All the messages and answers I’ve received from this post were incredible. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts. I love everyone’s answers. It’s really nice knowing how Harry Potter inspires us to get better :) If you want to share your answer to the question “What makes you a HP fan?”, don’t hesitate to do so. Maybe in the future I’ll paint more portraits to dedicate to another Potterhead.


You guys will be pleased to know that I finished “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” last night and subsequently ordered the entire box set on amazon at work this morning.


I promised to do a timelapse of Harry, I also added some quotes from each part, so it makes a bit more sense, because the drawing are pretty old and I didn’t really want to share them.But the work’s done and I thought I’d share this anyways.
