June 27th, 2011: The Person You Need is Nanny McPhee!

I was watching Nanny McPhee early this evening, and I paused it here and there to sketch a bit from it. Except for the parts that are disgusting (eeeevvil pink ladies!!), I think that movie is adorable! Love the house, love the father, love the children (especially Simon and the hungry child), love Nanny Mcphee, and I WANT a snow flake wedding! I mean, Evangeline, the dress, Simon's adorable eyes, and Nanny McPhee's smile = a wonderful ending. At least for me.
   Anyways, here are two of the best parts of my sketches. This one is supposed to be Simon; I don't really think it looks much like him, but it seems to have his spirit. I love Simon! I want to kidnap him!


Or have they? Hmm......

Yes, I am trying the "center to the right or left" blog photo technique: I was bored with simply centering them in the center all the time.
    Anyway, I love to read and watch such works as Nanny McPhee, Lemony Snicket, The Willoughbys, Spiderwick Chronicles, etc. My latest finding is The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Rosemary Wood. I am on the second book, and of course, it's adorable.
        I want to watch/pause Nanny Mcphee again: I want to practice drawing the children, especially Simon. Maybe I will do the same eventually for Nanny McPhee Returns. Yes, there is a second one, and while it doesn't have Simon or the snow flake wedding, it does have cute little kids of it's own. I saw the previews for it playing in the Undergournd while I was in London! That of course adds special charm to it for me.
    Now, have a good night, and always remember. "Beehive!!."

"There is something you should understand about the way I work. When you need me but do not want me, then I must stay. When you want me but no longer need me, then I have to go. It's rather sad, really, but there it is." -Nanny McPhee


  1. These are so cute, Mary! You should be an illustrator someday. I especially like the first one!

  2. Hoping for some more drawings soon... ;-) A gentle reminder from your neighborhood Spiderman - I mean, musician. ^_^

  3. Heh heh, Thanks Mrs. Spiderman... I clearly needed a reminder!
