SneakPeekNEW Harry Potter Illustrator Kazu Kibuishi

Meet Kazu Kibuishi, the illustrator of the new Harry Potter book covers coming out in September 2013. If you have read his Amulet series, then you know he is an awesome artist. If you have never heard of him before, you might be worried about his credentials. Is he worthy of the epic task of illustrating the book covers to the ultimate series of all time??

Click here to see the first new Harry Potter cover.

I had the chance to interview him a few years ago and he is so, so nice! For those Harry Potter fans who are worried about the new Harry Potter covers, I can assure you we are in good hands with this illustrator!

Watch my interview with him where he talks about being an artist.

And this interview where he shows us his real live, actual sketchbook!

He seems super-cool, right?  Leave a Comment to tell us what you think of the new Harry Potter covers!

    I THINK THAT THE OTHER ARTIST FOR HARRY POTTER WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER BECAUSE THIS OTHER GUY IS JUST COPYING HER (THE OTHER ARTIST)+J.K.ROWLING SO THIS GUY IS A COPY CAT IN MY BOTH OPINION AND PERSPECTIVE(THE WAY I LOOK AT THINGS)AND IS JUST TRYING TO GET MORE PABLISITY THAN HE ALREADY HAS GOTTEN FROM AMULET OR WHATEVER ITS CALLED.
