Artist Jim Kay revealed he suffers from depression and the Order of the Phoenix launch may be delayed

February 6, 2020

Jim Kay, the artist behind the Harry Potter Illustrated editions, has just shared that he has “been battered by depression these last few months, and despite working non stop have produced practically nothing for The Order of the Phoenix. A minor miracle is now required to get this book done.” Mental health is really important so we hope he gets better soon. We can wait for whatever he needs for the fifth book. Meanwhile, we send him a warm hug from here.

Jim Kay opened his studio to the New York Times last November, we recommend to read that interview to know more about him.
