1931 Subway Train

Sunday 12.13.2009 my friends Taisha and Durell and I went out for brunch in the city and as we go to catch our F train we see a strange train pull up. This train was labeled S for Special train which ran from Queens to Lower East Side. The train was built in 1931 and serviced NYC through the 70s. It was cool to see, and eveyone was taking pictures! There were old ads inside and even ceiling fans!!

Tim Burton @ MoMa

The Tim Burton exhibition @ MoMa explores the full range of his creative work, tracing the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work in film. It brings together over seven hundred examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, moving image works, concept art, storyboards, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera from such films as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, Mars Attacks!, Ed Wood, and Beetlejuice, and from unrealized and little-known personal projects that reveal his talent as an artist, illustrator, photographer, and writer working in the spirit of Pop Surrealism. The gallery exhibition is accompanied by a complete retrospective of Burton’s theatrical features and shorts, as well as a lavishly illustrated publication.

I had the pleasure of going to the exhibition this weekend and it was truly amazing, not only to see his work up close and personal but to see his earlier works from childhood to the present was serious! There are some pieces that will have you laughing and others that will have you questioning the man's sanity (lol). In conclusion definitely something to go and see and speaking from experience it's a trillion times better when you go with someone awesome ;-).
