Eight years ago, I won an online contest to draw a fan-art cover for the last Harry Potter novel. After that, I was asked to create the artwork of the Oxford skyline for an academic conference (Accio) in England,  discussing the cultural relevance of these books to the current literary world. While I did not get to go to Oxford at the time, I did get to visit recently, and it was amazing! London and Oxford are both full of history and art and beautiful things that I had only seen in books until now. I did get to stand in the steeple of the church just over Hedwig’s wing and look down over the inspiring landscape where J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis taught and created the books that would fill my childhood imagination. Accio memories!
