permlink Potter cover artist

Mildly interesting piece on the Harry Potter artist (for the American editions): The GrandPré Design [Washington Post]
Not wanting her own vision of the books to be influenced by the two movies, GrandPré stayed away from them until recently. When she finally saw “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone” a few months ago, she thought the movie’s creators “did a really nice job.” But she kept wanting to mess up Daniel Radcliffe’s hair: He wasn't tousled enough for Harry.

Seems artists have the same problem as the rest of us,
we all imagine what our mind offers when we read something until we see some elses visualization. Then what we imagined becomes less distinct and much hazier. Sometimes we should
just keep our imagination.
