There's a special place in our spooky hearts for the work of Tim Burton. His work defined an entire generation of goth and macabre media and his Impressionist, spiraling, skeletal designs can be seen in a million morbid creations today. Whether you were captured by the phantasmagoria of Beetlejuice, the playful fish-out-of-water of The Nightmare Before Christmas or the trippy excess of the Alice in Wonderland films, there's something that connects to the inner strange child of every person who watches his work.
Well, I've been a fan of Tim Burton since I was a teenager and my apartment is a treasure trove of memorabilia. I have my favorite pieces and I wanted to share them with you. Take a look below. You may find something fun to bring into your life.
The Art of Tim Burton
I saw the exhibit at the New York MOMA the first month after I moved to New York and it was a spectacular overview of the growth of his style. This is a great souvenir of that exhibition.
