I love Tim Burton as many do. When I was living in San Francisco, I had the privilege of seeing an exhibit of his rare work which included his first sketchbooks and drawings and even done small paintings. It was really neat and I’m glad I got to experience it.
I love Mr. Burton and love it when I do art that is inspired by him. If you recall my huge art piece that I created and posted about a month ago or so, and did a video on it called “Peculiar,” it’s actually based on his movie, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” If you haven’t seen it, scroll down to check it out. It’s for sale for $65.00.
Anyways yesterday I did another Tim Burton inspired piece based on the “Nightmare Before Christmas,” one if his most popular movies. As my canvas I used an oval slice of a tree trunk and stub (and no I didn’t harm the tree to get it) and did an illustration of some of the characters from the film including, “Lock, Shock, Barrel, and of course, “Oogie Boogie.”
For my medium, I used pencil, ink, colored pencil and ink, and watercolor. You can still see the tree bark on the side. I was really happy how this turned out and it’s for sale for $50.00. I plan on doing another Burton tree stump illustration but different from this so this Oogie Boogie piece is one of a kind.
Buy it before it’s gone. If interested contact me in the comment section here.
P.S: IF YOU WANT ANY ART USING A TREE TRUNK AS A CANVAS, DEFINITELY LET ME KNOW.
