Remember that reality show pilot I did this past fall with the flaming Korean guy that owns LA Premiere? On the show I was a designer along with four others that were competing to design an event he was doing. My assigned theme was Alice In Wonderland (we each were assigned different ones, but had no idea- we thought we all go the same), and I did something black, wirey and sparse. They also told me to use black and white AND include fairies - so yeah, that challenge, was... a challenge.
When it was my turn to be critiqued, they did two takes (reality for ya), and on the "That would scare a child, what were you thinking?" one, my response was "I think Tim Burton took over me".
I never thought I liked Tim Burton's style, or that I was that weird in my design choice, however I kinda am. And I like it.
My friend Nadiya works for the Custom Hotel. For one of their events, she said, Make something crazy, out-of-the-box; just go for it.
Music to my ears. So I did, on a budet, and here's what they got. Oh-so-inspired-by Tim Burton. It sort of relates to 31 Flavors below - everyone's got a taste, and sometimes mine just isn't pretty.
