Edward Scissorhands’ Mechanics in Sketch

Edward Scissorhands tee shirts tim burton clothing apparel movie

If you’re a fan of Tim Burton, you’re probably aware that he likes to draw. Certain sketches stay with him, and provide the genesis of ideas that he explores in detail in his films and other work.

When Burton first drew his iconic character Edward Scissorhands, he had sharper instruments than those seen in the movie, but the emotional thrust remained the same; here was a person who wanted an emotional connection and wanted to be touched, but couldn’t actually be touched because of the sharpness of the instruments — isn’t this a brilliant metaphor for an inability to form close relationships?

You won’t find many t shirts that work on as many levels as this one. It is a beautiful piece of art, an intricate technical illustration and a potent symbol of the central idea in the story of Edward Scissorhands. This is movie geek chic at its very best!
