‘The Napkin Art of Tim Burton’ Is Now A Book You Can Own & It’s Cool

By January 27, 2016

Ah, Tim Burton. The man who had the guts to try and bring us Nicolas Cage as Superman.

He has done a lot more than that, obviously. So many memorable movie moments of our childhoods came from Tim Burton’s dark and strange mind. We’re talking Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice. (Hope you didn’t read that out loud)

Burton has a fun and scary brain that we’ve been lucky (and yes, at times unlucky) as hell to have experienced in any media format. I imagine if you put his brain on a projector it would look something like illustrations from Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark mixed with Candyland. I don’t know, he’s just a weird dude with an awesome imagination.

Well, you can’t have his brain on a projection screen but you can have it on a napkin. This awesome idea is called The Napkin Art of Tim Burton: Things You Think About In A Bar and it’s a collection of wild ideas he’s come up with merely using a napkin and a pen. In his own words:

These are a collection of random thoughts, things, moments, feelings – done in bars, restaurants, hotels, and strange places all over the world. They were drawn quickly, as a stream of consciousness – wherever there was a napkin.

Check out the creepy artistic coolness for yourself (via BloodyDisgusting) :





Recognize some Tim Burton classics in there? Seriously, this is what this guy does while hanging at a bar. Most of us just sing bad karaoke and talk sports or who would win if superhero A fought superhero B(Which is cool too)

This seems like a ridiculously cool thing to have lying around the house on a rainy, weird day. You can make it so for $19.99 from Steeles Publishing. So check it out, GeekNation! And of course stay tuned for more stories of creepy napkin art and stuff.
