Welcome to Tim Burton World

There is not much I enjoy more in life than an afternoon at a museum. I treated myself to such an afternoon at the Los Angeles County Musuem of Art ( LACMA ) in downtown LA ( obviously ). Didn't have time to fully enjoy the grounds around the museum but, did dig the giant animal head sculptures on the way to the entrance ( it's a long story but, I'm into roosters ).

However I digress; I was at the LACMA to view the amazing Tim Burton exhibit that is ending Oct. 31 ( so hurry up and go!!! ). Tim Burton is one of LA County's own being born and raised in lovely Burbank. And you are familiar with his work whether you know it or not, because the guy has been contributing to modern culture since the 70s. The volume and scope of his work from ads to films is impressive to say the least.

And the good news is Mr. Burton is only 53 so hopefully there are many, many, many more unique and wonderful creations inside his mighty brain.
