My name is Jim Kay, and I am an illustrator and concept artist for books, television and film. In addition to illustrating books, I have also produced installation pieces for galleries, and concept work for film and television. I love museums, old books, David Lean films, creepy crawlies, gardening and just about any music from any century. I now live in Northamptonshire with my partner who assists me full time, and designs and makes hats too.

Seeing Jim Kay’s illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter’s world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it. J. K. Rowling
