Jim Kay for Bloomsbury Publishing

Bloomsbury and Scholastic will publish the first illustrated Harry Potter book in October, and though some of the first images were released back in January, Bloomsbury debuted some of the new artwork from illustrator, Jim Kay, on Wednesday.

In a short video, Kay shows models of Dobby the House Elf, a tower that’s shaped like a dragon, and Hogwarts, and explains how he uses those to influence the illustrations. According to Bloomsbury, J.K. Rowling had med with Kay for approval while he was working.

Check out the illustrations released earlier this year, and head to Buzzfeed to see more new images.
