Have I ever mentioned my LOVE of Nightmare Before Christmas? LOL
The movie was released back in 1993 and I had never seen it.
I guess I was pre-occupied with having a new baby - the 3rd.
Years later, when I saw it for the first time, I
WAS. ABSOLUTELY. HOOKED!!!
I only regret NOT having seen it on the big screen. Oh well.
I love the animation. The music. The lyrics. The love story. The characters.
Since then, I have gathered, collected, been gifted quite the collection.
I am however kind of a snob when it comes to the items I collect.
By that, I mean, I don't like just anything Nightmare. Like cheap knock-off crap that has been marketed just for the sake of making a quick buck.
I am very particular in the unique-ness, absolute likeness, and quality of the item(s).
Much like my snobishness (is that even a word?) of Disney art. There is so much stuff out there in the marketplace, just for the sake of making a quick buck, that is NOT up to Disney standards --- trust me, I know what their standards are -- that I can't imagine how some of the mass-manufacturers received a license. Especially the faces on some of the stuff. Likenesses are SO important. How can a Tink that looks like a man be sold as Tink?
O.k. I'm off my box now...moving on...source this is my computer screensaver
As a likeness snob, I am being really particular about my new office.
I have the BEST, Disney-quality scenic artist on staff right now, and he is my go-to guy when it comes to creating my Nightmare environment.
After much deliberation, Photoshop edits and transparency/over-head projector placements, I have settled on a color scheme and element placement.
At first, I was leaning towards animated color realism...is that an oxymoron or what? But, the more I considered that approach, the more I decided against being THE human in a cartoon.
The final design will be more charcoal sketch-like, mono-chromatic and warm-toned black, tans, creams, and whites verses bright blues, purples, yellows, etc...
I cannot wait for the finished space....
