Graphic play on words

This week, I had the immense delight to see the Tim Burton‘s exhibition at the Cinémathèque française in Paris (the Americans have already seen it at the MoMa & in LA).

Here’s a little interview to give you an idea of what this is all about.

Entretien exclusif avec Tim Burton par lacinematheque

In there we can see loads of drawings from Burton (even some that he made on restaurant napkins!). At the beginning, you have a dark room with phosphorescent paintings on black velvet. Quite impressive and it makes you dive into the Burtonesque atmosphere… Then, you have drawings, paintings, writings, statuettes, cinema costumes, films… a dream for all the fans.

I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that he is a language lover too. He made some really funny drawings to illustrate some idiomatic expressions, or he can write some humoristic lines along with a nice painting. Here are some I managed to find on the Web (quality not quite optimal, the best is to go there of course).


Do you like these too? Did you know this side of the Burton character?
