The Big Tim Burton Art Collab by tavington The Big Tim Burton Art Collab by tavington

And yes, Tim Burton himself has seen this! So to everyone involved, he has seen your work :D

Here it is finally!!
After pretty much 2 months of starting this collab, it is, at last revealed!

Artists from across the world have taken part to create one of the biggest art collaborations Ive ever seen. Contributors are from the UK, USA, France, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Germany and Finland.

Thank you to EVERYONE who did work on it, you are all amazing!
I never really thought Id get this many people interested to join, but after a month or so of the journal being up, I had an idea that it was gonna get quite big
Thank you all for being so enthused with this project, it really means the world to me :)


A special thank you also to my lifesavers, ~Funkykitsune, ~kalizin and =BenBASSO for delivering some of the most important characters as part of my back up plan! You are all incredible, so thank you!

Also thank you to ~VampireOfShadow, who went out of her way to complete Lock, Shock and Barrel, as they are ultimately a trio. I let her have an extra day to finish them, and they look super! :heart:

The same goes for ~Dext too, for delivering the final 51st character to me on Saturday :D

Here are the awesome peeps that made it all happen, make sure you drop by their galleries too:
