According to countless pieces of fan art, Harry Potter fans are some of the most talented individuals out there; these Makani Harry Potter illustrations only further solidify that fact. Makani, whose real name is Heather, is a Texas-based artist and she has, what some might say, an obsession with drawing Harry Potter characters. Not that it’s a bad thing though, since she’s incredibly gifted at drawing these quasi-Disney style illustrations.
My favorite of these Makani Harry Potter drawings is without a doubt Harry himself, as viewers get to see the wizardly protagonist rocking an indie star-inspired shaggy haircut similar to that of Jim from The Office.
