How do you illustrate magical tales like the Harry Potter series?

Find out from two artists who have done just that, adopting very different approaches to achieve equally stunning results. Chaired by Olivia Ahmad from the House of Illustration.

Olivia Ahmad is curator at House of Illustration, the UK’s only public gallery dedicated to illustration and graphic arts. Since its opening in 2014, she has been responsible for its programme of exhibitions on historic and contemporary illustration, artist residencies and commissions. Before joining House of Illustration, Olivia worked for the Northern Design Festival, Seven Stories National Centre for Children’s Books and Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums. Her recent exhibitions include Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics, Laura Carlin: Ceramics and A New Childhood – Picture Books from Soviet Russia.
