JULY 19, 2007
Here is a painting I did for Time in the summer of 2005. With a whirlwind of promotion and controversy, Scholastic is set to release the final Harry Potter this Saturday. The New York Times, who waited a long time to review the Bush administration's evidence in it's ponderous flop, "The Iraq War, Volume one, WMDs", could not wait until Saturday and offered an early review for this book. So many children have embraced reading as a result of Miss Rowling's work, so it's unfortunate that the Times couldn't wait a day.
