I also work as a freelance rep for the Illustrators' Agency, Arena but just for six of the main UK children's book publishing clients.
Graphic novel choices
Jim Kay was asked by Alison Thoet of PBS Newshour to recommend five graphic novels - and this gave him the chance to mention the marvellous work by Alexis Deacon, among others. The first two books of the trilogy can be seen above and also ordered from Nobrow.

Jim will also be interviewed in the forthcoming BBC†TV programme about Harry Potter on 28th October at 9.00. More on that here.

And here, a first look at the exhibition "A History of Magic" at the British Library.
'Power up' at the Science Museum
There's a chance this week to visit the Science Museum in London to play video games of all kinds, including†many of those early pioneers. John Harris produced the art for the manual covers for Clive Sinclair and we now offer those as signed giclee prints. Oddly enough, I even have the Microdrive painting (right) for sale at the moment. More here on the prints.
The Graphorn at the British Library
Two pieces of Olivia Lomenech Gill's work for the new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them will also be included in the exhibition opening at the British Library today. This very handsome Graphorn (above) and also her Snallygaster.
A History of Magic
Tomorrow sees the opening of the exhibition "A History of Magic" at the British Library.†It brings†together extraordinary artefacts held by the British Library (and others) as well as J K Rowling's scripts and drawings associated with the Harry Potter books. Jim Kay's phoenix, "Fawkes", has been used to advertise the exhibition and various pieces of his work will be included in the show. We can't wait to see it tomorrow!
Bladerunner 2049
There's†always been a slight†awkwardness on the subject of Ridley Scott's artistic influences for the original Bladerunner film. We know that John Harris was one of them because the†idea that he was officially employed had been discussed.† John doesn't bear grudges but he did say this today:

"I saw Mark Kermode's wonderful eulogy on the new Bladerunner with Simon Mayo, and I couldn't agree more with just about everything he said. But while he was talking about the inspiration of mood and the utterly different take on the visual imagery that Ridley Scott brought to bear on the genre, I couldn't help wondering whether Kermode had ever seen the work by the British artists such as Peter Elson, Jim Burns and myself. I'm thinking of the painting The Building of FTL 1 in particular (above), which I completed in 1977,†five years before Bladerunner came out."
IX Arts - Imaginative Realism
We send our best wishes to all the participants in this year's show and we hope it all goes well. We're sorry not to be there this time but hope to be with you next year.
Here are some examples of John Harris's recent work, and if you'd like to know more about them you can†find out here.
Publication of The Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is now published and it is a triumph. The werewolf (above) is just one of the many surprising and beautifully rendered pieces in this new edition illustrated by Jim Kay. There's a short film about the book hereandJim has now been interviewed by Format†on illustrating the series so far.
