Few authors have come to define the contemporary world of children’s literature as J.K. Rowling has. Somewhere around the world at this very moment, a reader is engrossed in one of her books or movies, the characters poignantly vivid, the world magical.

Rowling’s imagination is tremendous, and though her “Harry Potter” series continue to flourish, culturally, financially, otherwise, her early attempts at getting the books published weren’t always easy — some publishers even turned her down.

Said Rowling,

“I’ve been writing since I was six. It is a compulsion, so I can’t really say where the desire came from; I’ve always had it. My breakthrough with the first book came through persistence, because a lot of publishers turned it down!”

Wright’s imagery has been incorporated into the film versions of the books, and he has said that in the case of Harry Potter, “…a passage from the book was suggested and I began to draw ideas working closely with the publisher. So as to retain as much vitality as possible in the final watercolour painting I only produce small-scale quick pencil/pen sketches as roughs.  Time is spent on character and composition but not yet on execution, so my roughs are very simple.”
