This is part of a piece I did for a friend’s nursery. They have a new baby on the way and I wanted to do something cool they could put up in his room. I was going for a sort of Tim Burton meets Winnie the Pooh style.

Neat. The Christopher Robin is a just a shade over under creepy.

Leo said...

I think your use of colors are what really gives it the Tim Burton-ish feel. Well done.

Jack said...

Aren't you afraid that'll scare tiny chitluns?

Tim Burton style is a bit creepy.

Aimy said...

It looks cool for like, us...
Pooh is getting ready to pounce on something ^^; And Christopher Robin just spotted something interesting o.o
Good job though =)

Anonymous said...

I love the subtle stuff, like Pooh's texture and Christopher Robin's cheeks and knees.
Excellent use of color.

The Scientist said...

Definately a bit of the creepyness.

Leave it in by all means, but if you decide to do any alterations I think creep-factor could be toned down by giving them pupils in their eyes.

sean said...

Yeah, a pupil-less pooh could scare a young child, but I don't think a baby would be scared.

Rewnad said...

It's awesome... adults might think it's creepy but I doubt kids will. They tend to see things differently.

Fabricari said...

This is a great deviation from your regular stuff. I'm sure they have you bustin at the gills with commisions and other projects, but it'd be really fascinating to see you draw a comic in this style.

RA said...

d'awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.


the lankyness of christopher robin screams burton, well done burton.

pooh's belly makes me hmmm, but damn i want this in my room. XD

Why do they remind me of zombies?

I'm glad you didn't do Tigger... the poor kid would never sleep! :)

Julie said...

I really like the color composition.

Sam Nielson said...

Impressive deviation from your usual style! Your use of shapes still reveal it as yours, but the linework is so different. Great job.

terri said...

I like it..I don't think it's creepy. It reminds me more of a retro feel from the seventies...linear..abstract. Remember the backgrounds in the Bugs Bunny cartoons? For more of a Tim Burton feel give Pooh a leather shirt with dirty metallic accents and make Christopher Robin a whitish pale! :-)

Kato said...

I think it's very cute. Pooh does seem to be distracted. I suspect he's either thinking about honey, or thinking where he might be able to ditch Christopher Robin in order to pursue honey.

Brad said...

I think if Tim Burton ever actually met Winnie the Pooh, the universe would collapse in on itself.

henry said...

that is fucking awesome.

I wish it was something that could be laser celled - I'd buy it in a flash, but I'm sure the Disney lawyers would be on your ass even faster.

saintrobyn said...

That is great. The only request I would have for this is if you could expand on it a little and make it a wallpaper. This would be perfect for my daughter's computer.

Ryan said...

Wish I could comment on the technical aspects, 'Christopher Robin' does seem a tad Burton-esque in the lankiness but otherwise I don't see the creep factor of Burton in it. It's just awesome, well done. It makes me want to sire a youngling just to have something like this within thier close confines.

Joe said...

Wow, before I read it I thought - "that's kinda Winnie the Pooh meets Nightmare before Christmas.." Way to hit the nail on the head.

PA-FanBoy Dave Rambo said...

that's awesome, keep em coming.

Halbred said...

I like it, sir.

fohat said...

A nice surrealistic turn I'd say. Curious George once freaked me out as a kid, and I'm a better freak for it. I think the benefactors of this will enjoy. Nay, must enjoy!

Henry said...

This is awesome. Makes me wish Tim Burton really would remake Winnie the Pooh.

MrMacMan said...

I fully enjoy this piece.

Very unique.

Butterfly and leaves are nice touch.


It is kinda eerie with the clear eyes and all... the chris. robbin blush seems out of place tho... seems strange.

Very nice. Certainly the coolest Winnie the Pooh drawing I've ever seen.

Not that I've seen many Winnie the Pooh drawings, but whatever.

-frank said...

fantastic style! great to see something different from you once in a while.

Willows said...

That is awesome. I love the Burton-ish feel, much more interesting than the traditional Pooh look.

goneaway said...

Pooh's right leg confuses me a little although I guess the old story illustations and Disney drawing also made his legs look a weird combination of pudgy and spindly.

Andrew said...

this is pretty cool. its not like the rest of the stuff here(the warriors and gabeurai stuff).

Anonymous said...

Just wow. Your work continues to amaze me. I'd really love to see the twist you might give to the other characters from the 100 Acre Wood using this as a starting point.

Elizabeth said...

My three-year-old took one look at my computer when I was reading the post and freaked out. In a good way. This is wonderful.

FDisk said...

They look like a lesbian couple where Pooh is the butch. I love it :)

samsudin ismail said...

"Tim Burton meets Winnie the Pooh style."

cool combinations anyway!:) keep up your good work! really cool!

Zhi Bin said...

Creepy.

Andrew Glazebrook said...

A really nice look to this piccy !

Tim said...

I can't remember if you really were going to do a childrens' book or if my brain fabricated that, but this pic proves that you really should.

I have one of the limited "Tea with the Moon" prints of Catsby and Twisp, and would love to see something like that, but this pic shows that you could do a great childrens' book with a style all your own -- though I understand you probably couldn't do a Pooh book.

Love it, and thanks for sharing this kind of thing with us!

Mr. Huff said...

I like it. Where were you when I wanted a poster of Winnie the Pooh . . . many, many years ago.

Yay gabe!

Scott Warren said...

Whoa, really cool style.

bababear said...

I like this!

Genilimaa said...

OH - my - god!

I found you through the "Blogs of note", and am absolutely devastated by this picture. Will definitely look in your archives for more.

It's not scary, just a bit more ..unsettling.. than the usual babylike look. The empty eyes are of course those of the great Capitain Haddock by Herge. A sign of insanity about to break out? That's the "unsettling" thing I guess.

Thanks for sharing.

hey this ones is really cool !! congrats on makin it to the Blogs Of Note !!

Tilly said...

I think Tim Burton style is amazing and well, the deep dark woods are part of almost every fairy tale...great imagry!

Starry Saltwater Rose said...

I just straight up love this. Sure, it's a little weird, but if your friends wanted a standard Christopher Robin and Pooh, they wouldn't have asked you to do it, right? Love it. Makes me happy that I came across it.

Nate said...

I like your art. It's original and refreshing... Thank you.

Captain Capler said...

Wow, and wow again. Magnificent! Definitely Tim Burton-ish, but not too much. Especially color-wise. Very nice, warm colors. Reminds me of time spent in autumn. I'm going to get some pumpkin pie and meander over to the nearest harvest festival.

Priyan said...

Awesome work - I can see the Burtonesque in there (particularly he limbs) although it struck me as very much how Neil Gaiman might approach the Pooh-verse.

I would certainly add my voice to the wallpaper request. You know, if you have time between drawing and superhero stuff. ;)

medugorje said...

that is great

Joe said...

That is exactly what I though when I saw it...Nice Work!

Meadow Collins said...

i think you are THE artist of forever... and i'm only 14... i love how you made Pooh and Chris your own... its total crazzinesssssss

mary said...

I love this - do you do commissions?

Anonymous said...

I just love the idea of TIm Burton meets Winnie the Pooh. And very well executed too. Wonder how Maralyn Manson meets the care bears might look.

That'd be wicked.

This is amazing!!! Your lucky friends baby - I have a six month old son and stuff like this on his walls would ROCK!

Anonymous said...

Very Nice!

Heinrich said...

I'd actually watch a Winnie the Pooh cartoon or movie if it was done in that style.

Well done.

Benjamin said...

Fantastic Palette!!!
I ache for the ability to compose a palette like that. How do you do it???

IMHO the characters are very Don Bluth in facial characteristics and shading, & Burtonesque in elongation, palette and Pupil-less eyes. This piece is very Awesome and Inspiring. THANKS!

Orawin said...

I really like..it..I think..it is a good gift for a new baby..I have one of my friend she painted by herself...for her baby..it is so cute..too bad I don't have any pictures..

Annie Bailey said...

Great job - I like the use of this in a nursery...it's not a juvenile depiction, which is so overused for kids, but a nice edgy touch.

Emo Terrorist said...

Thats some freakin awesome work you have their dude. Rawk Ooonn!

Tallest Blue said...

It's a good thing you mentioned the "Tim Burton" thing because I was going to say this has mildly-creepy undertones to it. Especially the hollow eyes.

I can't help but think of Se-pooh-roth.

Tom said...

Nice picture, but Pooh bear doesn't wear clothes. Except in Disney. Look at all the E.H. Shepherd illustrations in the orignal book. Bah, I hate the Disney'isation of poor old Pooh! Having said that, do you want to do one for my kids nursery :)
