Goodbye films, goodbye noir, you have been so good to me....
....now I just need to get stuck in a finish my photos for the month....they are on hold tonight as I have to get stuck in and finish a She-ra costume for the little one for Halloween....so little time so many accessories to sew....why didn't you just wear the dress??? But it will be worth it as Amelie loves She-ra....and I can't wait to see if she recognises herself when she is all dressed up....stay tuned for awesome photos next week.
For today's final inspiration I will finish with the highly successful and stylised neo-noir Sin City. Filmed dramatically in black and white with accents of bold colour. The film was based on the comics by Frank Miller whose artistic vision was carried over into the film. I love these images below that show the comparison between the comic books and the film.

Only 2 days left to vote....if you have left it to the last minute...this is it!!
Today I have taken a small departure and will be putting up random photos of Noir that I have found! Apologies for the lack of sources but I didn't want that to stop me from putting these beautiful and striking images up!

Inside Tim Burton's Wonderland
This week it was announced that the brilliant Tim Burton exhibition showing at MOMA in New York will be travelling to Australia next year!!! Hurrah!! It will be on in Melbourne at ACMI!
We will be travelling down as we had seriously considered going to New York to see it! If only funds would allow it!
The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories
See the article from The Age HERE.
It states that the exhibition 'will bring together more than 700 examples of rare drawings, paintings, photographs and puppets and costumes. Among the exhibits will be early childhood drawings and student films by Burton as well as work from the yet to be released Alice in Wonderland.'
So in honour of this announcement I have chosen famed bizarre noir director Tim Burton as today's inspiration an example of the 'Modern Noir'.
