Info Graphic, How to get your inheritance faster in 7 easy steps style research.

Tim Burton

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories is a 1997 poetry book written and illustrated by film director Tim Burton. The poems, which are full of black humour, tell stories of hybrid kids, spontaneous transformers, and women who have babies to win over men.

This style of drawing is what I am looking for in my animation, simple shapes with detail imprint on to them. This style will fix in with my drawing skills.  

Edward Gorey
The Gashlycrumb Tinies: or, After the Outing is an abecedarian book written by Edward Gorey that was first published in 1963. Gorey tells the tale of 26 children (each representing a letter of the alphabet) and their untimely deaths in rhyming dactylic couplets, accompanied by the author's distinctive black and white illustrations. It is one of Edward Gorey's best-known books.
This style Edward Gorey uses in The Gashlycrumb Tinies would fix in well with my info graphic as it crates a dark out look through the drawing and the stories.  


After talking to Phil he said I should look at simpler way to draw but with details so I don't get hang up on the drawing side of the project. He mentioned to look into Tim Burton, Edward Gorey, David Shrigley and Purple Ronnie. Out of these 4 I chose to look into Tim Burton and Edward Gorey as they were the most fixing. We also talked about having a style that looked like it was in the back of a sketchbook, almost like a childes drawing out plans to kill his family members which would fix in the style of Burton and Gorey.

  1. It might add to your production time but if you're going for a sketchbook look then you might be able to get away with a "scruffiness" to the animation where the lines are all dancing and shaking about.
