Mars Attacks! Concept Art, 1995-1996

“Tim’s world is an eclectic one. In ‘Mars Attacks!’ shapely femme fatales sit side by side with the darker martian villains. During his daily visits to our workshop, Tim would do his crazy little sketches of these alien invaders. The broad sweeps are more important than fussy detail. The real strength in Tim’s artwork is his appreciation of form with strong shapes and exaggerated proportions. Within a few seemingly simple pen lines, he creates bold silhouettes like the traingular outline of the Ambassador’s sweeping cape with its iconic collar or the hourglass outline of the Martian Girl. You would be mistaken for thinking that some of Tim’s rough sketches are rudimentary, loose or naive, for they hold vital information, demonstrate a great delicacy, sensitivity, consisten keen eye, and a stunning vision.” - Ian MacKinnon, MacKinnon & Saunders Puppet Creator & Designer, ‘Mars Attacks!’
