With Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" now in theaters nationwide, we thought we would share our interview with him and the screenwriters of the film from our December, 2014 issue. "Tim Burton wrote his poem The Girl With Many Eyes years before screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karazewski approached him about Margaret Keane’s story, which has all the Shakespearean elements of history, tragedy and comedy.

Margaret Keane is known for her paintings of "Big Eyed" children that became hugely popular in the '60s. Her husband infamously claimed credit for her work, and Margaret is the subject of the new Tim Burton film "Big Eyes." We featured the artist, screenwriters and Tim Burton in our June and December 2014 issues.

Tim Burton brought his latest addition to his hallowed filmography to Comic-Con this year. Frankenweenie is the loving tale of a boy and his dog.Of course, this is a reanimated Frankenstein patchwork dog, but a dog non the less. Shot in stop motion (and all in black and white), Frankenweenie started out as a short film created by Burton in 1984, but for Comic Con, he brought the original puppets, set pieces, and props from the film to a mini exhibit available for the public to see.

What's a Tim Burton movie without Johnny Depp in some really pale make-up? And on that topic, shouldn't he go by John now? You are, indeed, a grown-up now. Moving on, Tim Burton is set to release his new film, Dark Shadows, which is based on the slightly campy 1966-1971 supernatural soap opera of the same name. This could go either way, but you know the filmmaking and sets will be great as always.

Juxtapoz headed out to the opening gala at LACMA for TIm Burton's retrospective this weekend, and of course, it will be one of the more heavily trafficked shows of the year in Los Angeles and beyond. “The exhibition brings together over 700 drawings, paintings, photographs, moving-image works, storyboards, puppets, concept artworks, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, including art from a number of unrealized and little-known personal projects."

After the hugely successful Tim Burton retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, the exhibition is moving to Los Angeles and the LACMA in what we assume will again be a massively attended showcase of Burton's drawings, live-action and animated films, photographs, and illustrations.
