Man, Pokemon is 20 years old now…I feel old (lol). I’m not sure what to say about this, other than I sacrificed my sleep schedule and sanity to get this done on time. I’m really rather proud of it! Much in the way Pokemon has grown and evolved throughout the years, I feel like my art has done so as well. Pokemon has been such a huge part of my life since I was small and this series means so much to me. I loved all the stories and characters in these games, and I’ve always been inspired to draw from this series. So Pokemon, thank you for bringing me joy for so many years, and I hope you’ll continue to provide joy in the years to come!
A day late (I know), but here’s my Harry Potter 20th anniversary post! The four houses of Hogwarts 18th century style! Hope you all like it :D
I remember my first Harry Potter book when I was a child: my mom bought the first one (as the Spanish version was quite new) for me to read while on vacation and BOOM a fan was born u.u When I think about Harry Potter, I think about one of the key literary and fiction influences from my childhood, along with A Series of Unfortunate Events.
What do these books makes you think about? What did you like the most about them?
