“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the script book for J.K. Rowling’s new play, sold more than four million print copies in its first week in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., the book’s publishers said Wednesday.
Print sales for the script book have totaled 3.3 million in North America and nearly 850,000 in the U.K. since its release on July 31, according to Scholastic and Little, Brown Book Group.
Billed as the eighth Harry Potter story, the script book has also boosted sales of the original seven “Harry Potter” novels.
My name is Heather Rooney. I am an illustrator specializing in photorealistic colored pencil and graphite drawings. Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail. I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities, and entertainment professionals.
With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
