We can't help but share another delight from Andy Singleton's project with Pottermore. Our favourite and rather heoric creature, known to some as 'Witherwings' but most as 'Buckbeak'. A charming and passionate hippogriff who lived with Rubeus Hagrid in the School grounds and who was a loyal in defending Harry in battle mutliple times. Andy has created a whole array of paper crafted 3D models if you're as nerdy as we are about the wizzarding world.

Commissioned by British Airways for 'Highlife Magazine'. Bravo Sam!

If you're a fan of the wizzarding world, you are probably very familiar with some of the characters Andy has crafted. We implore you to explore them in detail over at the Pottermore website, have a lemon sherbet and find out your patronus whilst you're at it. That sounds like something Dumbeldore might say.
