We are the BAMF Art Blog Bunch a group of eleven artists from around the world and we have a group blog full of nonsense and creative fun at the BABB Blog.
We decided that for fall and October we would do a theme related to the illustrator-director-story teller Tim Burt0n. The entries below are all our seperate and creative takes on the theme and some of our relatives are also exhibiting, tres exciting, have a look!
I have been fiddling with skulls on black pots for awhile. At one point, Kasey mentioned "teh goths rock teh black and red" and she was right, and I added red with the black, and another time kasey was like "OH! I love hearts and skulls!" and she is getting married and I made sure she got a teapot with hearts and skulls, but this week for this exhibit I wanted to take the idea a little further. I wanted a spirally teapot with a groovy handle, but then I was wondering if I could also paint on a spooky skull.....and I did :) These cups and teapot are available by emailing me at email@example.com and other items like them are already for sale at my etsy gallery.My name is Gary Rith and my blog is here. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and my website is http://www.garyrith.com/ and my etsy gallery is here.

It's kinda JACK-like. :)
I love a Nightmare Before Christmas.. Jack might be my favorite non-human character ever.. he's creepy, he can be nice, but mostly he's just a fun weirdo character. I wanted to get a little bit of Jack into my BABB Tim Burton*ish project, so I just planted him in the bottom of a Halloween colored bowl. This bowl is available in my Etsy Shop or you can see more photos, plus fun pottery stuff at my BLOG. If the bowl is already sold, I'm making a few more... you can contact me at RebeccaJDBrandow@yahoo.com if you just can't live without one. :)

Hi folks! Typically I am a portrait and wedding photographer, but I have this lovely image of my daughter. I picked it because it's kinda spooky looking with her running in the woods in a white dress.... like she's being chased by some spooky creature. With it's creepy yet whimsical feel - I thought it would be a perfect fit for the BABB Tim Burton-ish Show!

When I think of Tim Burton, I think of a spooky atmosphere, but there also seems to be a story behind each image. The first image is from an abandoned Fort Williams in Maine.
The second image is from an interesting building at Cornell University. In the fall we have a lot of dreary cloudy days. This is an excellent time to capture a spooky mood with black and white.
Check out these photos, and other photos at my SmugMug site.
This piece is called "Oogie Boogie Blood and Guts Bowl". When thinking of Tim Burton and his wonderful animations mainly the "Night Before Christmas", which George and I adored what comes to mind is always the macabre . His creations always hold me spellbound even though they are at times gory and somewhat repulsive to the Max.
It is made out of stoneware, fired to cone 6, the character is hand sculpted.
The character I created was to represent his wonderful animated characters. This one met his match and wound up squished into a soup for a Monsters dinner.
The soup consists of tomato soup, salsa, pasta, and provolone cheese cut into bones. MMM so delicious and rated four stars by ghouls, trolls, monsters everywhere
