The Trio - Better Late Than Never

HP: the Sketch

These guys would have been a heck of a lot more timely last week, but they were just being finished and had yet to be received by the (late) birthday girl.

I've had this little sketched idea on the back of a pink "while you were out" slip for at least a year. Quite possibly since the last round of mega-Potterness when Deathly Hallows was released. It's quite amazing I kept that little slip around so long.

It's nice to have the idea finally materialize.

Though Ron does have a bit of a Darco Malfoy-esque evil grin. He must have Slytherin's Locket around his neck for safe keeping, right?

Harry, Hermoine & Ron were spray-finished and quickly sent on their way to Darcy to help celebrate her birthday (late, of course - we're not too great at getting things done on time, are we?). USPS amazed me again, and were able to deliver my package all the way from the Land of Lincoln to La La Land between Saturday afternoon and Monday afternoon. Doesn't that rock? All for like less than $3.

When I first sketched out this idea, taking a creative break at work, my mind was racing with thoughts of whole Potter-verse of wooden peg people. Perhaps one day...
