It was well worth the trip!! I love getting a peek into the process of creative people, how their minds work, and how they develop ideas. No photographs were allowed in the exhibit itself, but they did let you snap one as you entered, hence the photo above. It was a great collection that spanned his entire career from his very early work, to sketchbook doodles, to notes regarding his work on Beetlejuice and Charlie and the Chocolate factory to name a few.
We also made it a point to visit the California Design 1930 - 1965 exhibit. I snapped quite a few pictures to capture the layouts of the printed materials from this era that I am always drawn to, as well as some of the great fashion pieces they had on hand.
All in all a perfect Sunday if I do say so myself.
P.S.: I am considering purchasing a domain name that I like in case I ever get the nerve to start doing design work on my own (eek).
