My son and I went to see the Tim Burton exhibit in Toronto, it was very inspiring.
"Growing up in Burbank, there wasn't much of a museum culture, I never visited one until I was a teenager (unless you count the Hollywood Wax Museum). I occupied my time going to see monster movies, watching television, drawing, and playing in the local cemetery. Later, when I did start frequenting museums, I was struck by how similar the vibe was to the cemetery. Not in a morbid way, but both have a quiet, introspective, yet electrifying atmosphere. Excitement, mystery, discovery, life and death all in one place. So all these years later, to have this exhibition, to be showing things - some of which weren't ever to be seen, or are just pieces of the larger picture- is very special to me." Tim Burton
