We interrupt our regularly scheduled program…

This Thursday my friend LJ has a new show opening at Root Hill Cafe in Park Slope.

Needless to say, I think her paintings are quite wonderful so stop by to check them out.

Foiled Again!

Foil Bunny by LJ Lindhurst

My friend LJ’s spectacular artwork is in another gallery and the opening is this Thursday.

The gallery opening is also part of Dumbo’s 1st Thursday so you can visit a bunch of other galleries that evening. Should be a fun evening of art.

Alice

Check out the trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland:

The little snippet of the Red Queen and the Mad Hatter reminded me of Queenie and Black Adder (or maybe it was a bit more Lord Melchett).

I still haven’t made it to Tim Burton’s MoMA exhibit – but will do so during the holiday when our studio is closed.

Calaveras

Happy Day of the Dead! Now’s the time for you to go visit any family members buried in cemeteries. Clean up their gravesite and leave some pretty flowers or a little pumpkin.

Check out these lovely Day of the Dead skulls and skeletons. You can’t deny they are perfect Halloween decorations. Or in my case, year round decorations (in my world, everyday is Halloween) – here’s one I picked up one summer at the beach with friends.

Some fun skulls I found on the web:

Tim Burton

Oh Tim Burton, why did you have to go and marry the beautiful Helena Bonham Carter when you were obviously meant for me? Hell, I’d marry Helena Bonham Carter too if I had the opportunity!

Starting November 22, 2009 and running until April 26, 2010, you can see Tim Burton’s artwork and films at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

More Gorey

Well, Gorey-esque is more like it.

Which Witch?

Vintage Halloween postcards are fun but certainly not all that scary. Check out these witchy ones:

Well, this one is a bit scary. Is that a klansman chasing the witch? I’d be scared too!
