Lydia Deetz

 

Here’s a painting I did towards the end of last year called ‘So Can I?’. It’s Lydia Deetz from Tim Burton’s ‘Beetlejuice’ taken from near the end of the film where Lydia (Winona Ryder) has asked if she can be ‘possessed’ in the way her parents and their friends were earlier in the film with the song ‘Day-O’ around the dinner table. More shrimp anyone!? This time around, Lydia gets to dance, mid-air, to ‘Jump in the Line’ as credits roll.

Well, I was mightily thrilled that one Bobbi Thompson (the first agent for Tim Burton and James Cameron) had seen my painting of Lydia on DeviantArt and had asked if I would enter it into an exhibition of Tim Burton fan art in LA! I said ‘yes’ and had it printed, mounted and framed and hastily sent over to America where it, hopefully as we speak, is being mounted to the wall for the show this weekend (28th-29th Jan 2017). The show is called ‘Stay Peculiar’. I wish I could go, but living here in England, I can’t

Here’s a few links:

Incidentally, the painting was done on Photoshop CS6 using a Wacom tablet.

I’m outta here,
