C is for Chickens & Clowns...and Creepy

I just wanted to add that the baby clown is based on one that used to walk around a themepark I once worked at. I literally went the long way round to the staff room just to avoid him.

The day Adele met Mr. Burton

Director Tim Burton came to town this week to open the Tim Burton exhibition & he was nice enough to take time out to sign his awesome art book and have photos taken. I was pretty freaking excited inside & only about 250 people got the chance on a chilly Melbourne morning. He's very cool in my books & he seemed very nice. Im eager to get to the exhibition at ACMI...I bought a season pass, now I just have to find some time! The photo was taken by Michael Amos.
Below is my contribution to the Burton art wall from when I finally visited the exhibition. As you can see it was aimed for kids due to the medium of crayons...but there were more adults than children having a scribble.

Childhood Fear : Bathroom Wolf

Here is a quick illustration I did today for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) here in Melbourne for their Burton Wonderland Gallery, in line with the upcoming Tim Burton Exhibition. They have invited artists to submit up to two original artworks inspired by the style of Tim Burton. This one is based on a childhood fear I had...each time id go to wash my face at night and after looking up from the basin, I would be afraid of seeing a wolf standing behind me in the mirror. I think it came from having too many storybooks with wolves as the theme, eating billy goats, stalking little girls and so forth.

B is for Bikers & Badgers, Badgers, Badgers...

Here are some ladies I drew whilst doing some extra work during last week...I don't need one, but smart phones are great when they keep people in a position long enough for me to draw them.
