Magnificent, Marvellous, Mighty Monday and TIM BURTON

What isn't there to love about Tim Burton? His quirkiness, his originality, his casting decisions make him a giant amongst other pygmy film-makers in my opinon. Who wouldn't want Johnny Depp in all their films?

I love his wife Helena and to me Tim, Helena and Johnny form the Holy Trinity of bizarre, eccentric and cool of artistry.

Tim represents all of us introverted outsiders. He shows us that being different, strange and weird can also be creative and liberating if you're true to your visions. It doesn't matter if you have trouble articulating your words or if you're shy and awkward as long as you keep creating!

I could have lived without his monkey picture but movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Mars Attacks! and Sleepy Hollow are like beautiful dark fairytales.

You can already feel the anticipation building amongst his fans as we wait for his trippy, colourful Alice In Wonderland.

And so for Magnificent, Marvellous, Mighty Monday let me present Tim Burton! May his dazzling creative genius inspire our own creative efforts this week.

Celebrate the introvert and the outsider in yourself. Allow yourself the freedom to be bizarre, slightly twisty and to live, think and dream outside the box!
