Artist Creates Horror Versions of Harry Potter Book Covers

Concept artist and illustrator Dylan Pierpont who is, to paraphrase Clive Barker’s Lord of Illusions, clearly drawn to the dark side. His illustrations and concept art are dark and fantastical, fascinatingly blending macabre with beauty, grotesque with precision.

Recently, Pierpont aimed his talents at one of the most beloved literary series of all time: Harry Potter. Pierpont created a horror-themed cover for each of the seven books in the series, taking some element from each story and using it as the foundation of the presentation. What comes from this is a 7-piece series that takes the stories that many of us grew up with and gives them a sinister, demented edge.

You can see the full series below and I strongly suggest looking through Pierpont’s official website to see what other kinds of art he’s created.
