In a previous blog post entitled “How to become an Advocate for Awesome, ” I declared that from time to time I would be recommending things that I think are awesome and that you should check out.
While wandering the Artist’s Alley at Emerald City Comicon this year, I discovered Jemely & Jeremy Jayme. They are more commonly known as the Jayme Twins.
Below is the image from #HarryPotter that caught my attention:

One of the twins asked me “Do you know who Colin Creevey is?” I responded that I did. She said, “This series was created to look like photos that he would have taken.”
In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling, Colin Creevey gets introduced. His first appears in chapter six, asks if he can take a picture of Harry Potter, and then explains,
“I never knew all the odd stuff I could do was magic till I got the letter from Hogwarts. My dad’s a milkman, he couldn’t believe it either. So I’m taking loads of pictures to send home to him.”
What these sisters have done is create six pieces of art that look like photographs, printed them on photo paper, and added a sticker on the back with a caption. You can buy the individual images or buy the set which looks like the below.

These twin sisters describe themselves as “the kind of twins that do everything together, very much like Fred and George Weasley.” The graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor’s of Art in Media and Communication and have been putting it to good use.
I have come across a lot of fan art in the past, but these may be my favorite. The attention to detail is incredible. They did such amazing job. I purchased the entire set. I’m torn between framing them and keeping them in the envelope to store with my copy of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Besides Harry Potter, they have a second Darkroom Series for Wonder Woman. They also have other pieces of art including some great pieces of Agent Peggy Carter from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as well as a literature series.
If you are now a fan like I am, here are a list of ways that you can be supportive:
