This week at Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls
We are celebrating the Art and Works of
Terry Gilliam, is a wonderful Artist/Animator, Actor, and Director.
I'm sure many of you will know him from the Monty Python team,
but since then he's directed some of the most fantastical fantasy films ever made.
The Challenge is to Create a Card/Project based on any of Terry Gilliam's Work.
The Design Team has come up with some wonderfully
Fun creations, so be sure to check them all out.
To be honest with you I personally am not too familiar
with his work. I have only seen Time Bandits, way back
in the 80's. I remember it being a fun crazy movie.
So I was inspired to make a Time Bandit.
For my Time Bandit I used Steampunk Boy by The Octopode
Factory and the clock is from Smeared Ink.
Welcome to Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls. If you love the work of Tim Burton, and enjoyed the challenges over at The Burtonesque Dolls then you'll like it here. All the forthcoming challenges will have a 'Burtonesque' feel to them, although they may have no direct link to the works of Tim Burton. The whole idea of this blog is to widen the challenges, maybe introduce you to films, books and directors that you've not heard of before. It's all about fun, maybe a little quirky and twisted fun, but still fun.
For our first challenge we have chosen a very broad theme;
'Halloween' we want you to create a card/project inspired by your favourite Halloween film, book or memory.
You can use images from any company you wish, and you can create a digital project if you wish,
it's all for fun, so no limitations,
just make sure you respect the copyright of the artists out there.
Don't forget to tell us what inspired your creation,
that's all part of the fun. My creation was inspired by a Halloween childhood memory.
Every year my mom would put a paper skeleton on our front door
and I was really scared of him at night. I told my mom
that I could hear him talking to me.
I was afraid he would come and get me. That skeleton
started my love for anything fun and cute Halloween
but nothing too scary.
Here he is...
The skeleton is from an awesome Tim Holtz set by
Stampers Anonymous. Retro Halloween.
Can't wait to see your scary or not so scary creations.
