Yesterday, G and I were in the city and so decided to go have a look at Tim Burton: The Exhibition @ ACMI in Fed Sq as it finishes in a few days.
The exhibition brings together over 700 works, including paintings, drawings, puppets, costumes, storyboards and film showing Burton's work as director, concept artist, illustrator and photographer.
It was so inspiring. To see rough initial drawings torn out of sketch books so closely resemble the finished characters of his animations and films is just amazing.
One of my favourite pieces was the series of number illustrations. It's inspired me to explore some number and alphabet based designs. You can see the series here in the into to the website.
I forgot how much I love his movie, Big Fish. It's both magical and touching.
