When bored I will often watch movie trailers of movies that will be coming out and that's how I stumbled upon the trailer for Beastly. Being a fairy tale junkie especially when it comes to the story of Beauty and the Beast, I have already read the book Beastly that the movie is based on. Even though it looks a little cheesy, I still have a secret desire to see. If not for the story, seeing Mary Kate Olsen as the witch is probably worth it. Is it me or does she look amazing? Also Neil Patrick Harris is an extra bonus.
Totally Bewitching ;)

Just a Little Something...

Saw this quote in the front of a book today and loved it so I thought I would share.

Two for One

Since I haven't posted in awhile I thought I would share two new finds. I majored in art so whenever I am at a library or bookstore I can't help but notice book covers and illustrations. These two guys are some new favorites I just found."Young Iggy Peck is an architect
and has been since he was two,
when he built a great tower - in only an hour -
with nothing but diapers and glue.
'Good Gracious, Ignacious!' his mother exclaimed.
'That's the coolest thing I've ever seen!'
But her smile faded fast as a light wind blew past
and she realized those diapers weren't clean!" - Iggy Peck Architect
The first is David Roberts. I love his art in the book Iggy Peck Architect. The story is fabulous too! I also just recently read The Dunderheads which he also illustrated. Once again amazing drawings and color. I couldn't find his personal site (if he has one I missed it). But another blogger (Sweet Pea) awhile back wrote about him and had some nice pics too.
The other illustrator is Glin Dibley. I noticed his work on several book covers and decided that I had to look him up. Again I didn't find a personal site but I did find is portfolio on Shannon Associates. Really loving the colors and sense of humor.
