Heaven and Hell for Burton

A watercolor design/concept art by Tim Burton himself for 1989 Batman, Simple, evocative but interesting, much like Burton himself at the time.

From Pee Wees' Big Adventure to Ed Wood (my personnel favorite) Tim Burton was an amazing director full of inventions and style. Now his movies are so soaked in middle aged melodrama blandness that even lesser entries like Sleepy Hollow look good.

Perhaps Burton should have followed this thought from the Dio led Black Sabbath-now called Heaven and Hell(whatever, they put great albums, so the name doesn't matter).

Tim Burton was quite an artist. Did you enjoy "Corpse Bride"?
