Filmmaker Tim Burton is known for the distinctive conceptual art he produces in the process of visualizing his equally distinctive films (he even started his career as an animator at Disney). So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Mr. Scissorhands is a prolific doodler, which is the subject of the new book Things You Think About in a Bar: The Napkin Art of Tim Burton.
Things You Think About in a Bar: The Napkin Art of Tim Burton is a 140-page collection of drawings made by Burton as he wasted time in various offices (and yes, bars) over the years. You know you’ve made it as an artist when people will pay money to look at your doodles, and Tim Burton is definitely at that rarefied point in his career.
If you’re one of the people who will pay money, more precisely, $20, to look at Tim Burton’s doodles, you can do so by ordering your copy of Things You Think About in a Bar: The Napkin Art of Tim Burton at Steeles Publishing right here.
