I've decided to invoke the great Tim Burton himself for my entry. The asymmetrical shadows and exaggerated lines are an homage to German Expressionism, one of my favorite periods in art/film history.
I am a HUGE fan of Tim Burton, so as soon as I heard about this contest I got to work right away! I've been a fan my whole life, going back to the first grade when I dressed up as Catwoman for Halloween. I dragged my Mom to the theater to see The Nightmare Before Christmas half a dozen times when it first came out and I have seen every film he has ever made and anticipate each new release eagerly. I even traveled to New York just to see his show at the MoMA! He is my favorite director, artist and kiddie book author. To be judged by him would be a dream.
I am very influenced by his work, so if you are also a fan, be sure to check out my other entries and my gallery.
Thanks for looking, commenting, and favoriting. Best of luck to all other contestants!
