The Ickabog Illustration Competition

During lockdown, the author J.K. Rowling invited budding young artists between the ages of 7 to 12 years old to illustrate The Ickabog, for the once in a lifetime chance to be featured in her new book called The Ickabog. Our very own MJ decided to enter the competition and produced some amazing illustrations! His artwork was even retweeted by J.K. Rowling herself, who said:

"MJ, you're so talented! This is a PERFECT picture of the scroll Professor Fraudyshame showed King Fred! You've made an amazing Ickabog here - I love the black scales and the wide scarlet wings - it looks like a heraldic beast!"

We are all very proud of him and astounded by his talented. Well done, MJ!
