"No?" said Coraline.
"No," said the cat. "Now, you people have names. That's because you don't know who you are. We know who we are, so we don't need names."'
I just recently had time to read a book or two and thought I'd plop down and read another children's story (since they seem to be the only books that can hold my interest these days.) And there had been some hype about the new 'Coraline' movie coming out on DVD soon, so I decided to pick it up and give it a chance. To my surprise, the book had many things that I enjoy in a good book: a good plot, fun characters, an evil villian, dark humor, a slighty, slightly, slighty gothic style, and many others that I won't mention here (for the list would likely go on for a while.)
Anyway, by reading this schpeel, you'll probablly guess what today's picture is of. It seems to have become a bit of a cliché with me (reading a good book and then drawing a picture of it), but...oh well. It's a bit of a tribute to both the look of the film and the desciption from the book. If you've read the book, you'll know what's in the picture and what it signifies. If not...I highly recommend you go read it. It's a relatively short book and reads fast, so not much of your precious time will be wasted.
Hope you all enjoy. More to come soon.
