Author and illustrator Jonny Duddle inspires at Dulwich Prep

We were delighted to welcome author and illustrator Jonny Duddle to school as part of the Cranbrook Literature Festival. Jonny is best known as the illustrator of the Harry Potter books, as well as the author of the popular ‘Pirates’ series of books. Jonny spent the morning in Nash House and Little Stream, recounting his pirate tales and drawing some fantastic pictures to create characters suggested by the children. 

In the afternoon we welcomed children from Sandhurst Primary School to join in a workshop with Jonny, who showed us how he created the images of the famous Harry Potter characters. Everyone got busy with their sketch books, having a go at drawing Dobby and Hagrid – there were some fantastic interpretations of Jonny’s original drawings.
