Ok, so over at Nico's blog was some of his fan art for Coraline. It was a great movie, with awesome scenes and characters. However, I have read the book, and what made the book inevitably better was the imagery. Especially of the Other Mother. I decided to let you all know what the Other Mother looked like in my head.
