11 of the Weirdest Christmas Images From My New Book (PHOTOS)

Posted: 11/15/10 07:21 AM ET

Some people want to know why I've got a whole chapter of holiday drawings and paintings in my art book (for what it's worth: "The Art of Tim Burton"). I've always loved the holidays. Maybe it has something to do with growing up in a California suburb, where the only way to tell the passing of seasons was when people broke out the holiday decorations. Christmas has always been one of my favorites. I love the gaudy decorations people strew everywhere and the idea of snow before I ever got to experience it. My other favorite is Halloween, and the combination of the two was where the inspiration for "The Nightmare Before Christmas" came from. Of course anything that I felt a kinship towards came out in my artwork. Here is a sampling of a few of my favorite Christmas pieces that appear in the book.
