Bartimaeus and Nathaniel by TheoBain Bartimaeus and Nathaniel by TheoBain
I just had to sketch out the two lead characters from the first book in Johnathan Stroud's Bartimaeus trilogy. Just started to read book two and these kids novels ROCK!!!

Yeah, top notch books. I just finished the trilogy. Damn good.

I think it would have blown up like Harry Potter had it not come out while HP was blowing up.

Cute :) I love these books they are the best! I fell in love with the name Nathaniel because of the Bartimaeus Trilogy. Bartimaeus and Nathaniel are the best! I also love the expression they have in this picture :typerhappy:

Heh, I love that you show Bartimaeus in one of his more obnoxious forms to match Nathaniel when he's young and sullen. I also like how this sketch is very book-illustration-like. Thanks for sharing!

YAY! Finally found a Bartimaeus deviation :) The books are first rate. In a way I hope they never make the series into a move, they'dnever be able to nail the opening scene imo.
