POPzilla presents “The Burton Show”

Poppins April Fools

Happy April Fools! You may have seen a Tim Burton Mary Poppins movie poster floating around the interwebs this past week. Well, I hate to break it to you but it’s fake. I sincerely hope you knew that already. We wanted to make a big deal about the announcement for our next show coming up in November, “The Burton Show”. And I think with this poster we succeeded at getting your attention. The damn thing went as viral as one could hope. For example visit Inside the Magic, the comments are all very entertaining. This upcoming, unofficial, non-affiliated tribute show will feature pop art inspired by the many films of Tim Burton. Look for new artwork based on movies like Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands and of course The Nightmare Before Christmas. This show is a chance for artists who are also big fans of Tim Burton to celebrate the creepy goodness of his entire career. We plan on having about 75 artists be a part of this one. If you are interested in participating in this show, you can email us at POPzillaGallery@gmail.com. Please be sure to mention “The Burton Show” in the subject. And please supply us with some samples of your art, as we want to make sure all art featured in the show is a good fit.

The “POPcade” Video Game Show (Opening May 10th), as well as “The Burton Show”(November 2014), will take place at the Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim California. Hope to see you at both shows. And as always feel free to show up in costume to each. We’ll make it worth your while. WINK.

"The Burton Show"

Malice in Wonderland

I painted this one when I lived in Huntington, it is kind of the second in a series. The first one being Dorothy, and the next one is a yet to be painted Sleeping Beauty. I plan on doing that one with our famous princess in silk sheets and a bottle of sleeping pills. That one is on deck. But this piece I am a fan of. The model is Joanna Krupa, one of my favorites if you couldn’t tell. Lot’s of little things about this one, you have the pervy Mad Hatter whispering nothing but bad ideas in her ear. You have the Tweedles holding hands, they were always a little gay to me. The huka was a must, now that i think about it I wish I painted a catipillar on it. And I think when I show this at a gallery I want to get a real bottle of Jack and recreat this label for it. I just know one of my alcohalic friends will take it. Oh well.
