A Twist

I love these guys! (Well, one's a girl.) Used an orange Prismacolor Col-Erase pencil to sketch the characters in, then inked it and painted it with watercolor.

I watched a pretty interesting movie last night. The City of Ember. It had its flaws, but the production design was superb. Tim Robbins and Bill Murray were in it, which was another huge surprise. Where was I when this came out? Apparently it flopped because it wasn't promoted very much.

In other news, the book on which the movie is based has a really awesome cover design. Will I read the books? Probably. After I finish the 10 other ones I'm reading right now.

Why do I read books by the dozen, rather than one at a time?

This one crack me up. SO funny!!

ps. why do you read books by the dozen? and how do you keep them separate in your mind??!

Cute pictures. :) I have read the City of Ember books. The book (as always) is even better than the movie. You should give them a try. The first book is better than the sequels.

I loved that movie. I watched it first and then again with Andy. All he could do is point out everything that was wrong with the story line. What a Debbie downer.

Erik and I read the book together and then found out a movie was being made. The movie was interesting, but the book was better (of course). I agree that the production design was really good. It really brought elements of the book alive. The book is rather simply written, but a really fascinating story. It's a very quick read if that helps.

I just finished the book. I hate to say it, but I actually liked the movie better. Maybe since I had already seen the movie, the book just seemed to plod along.

And you have to admit the mole was terrifying.
