Tim Burton can build!

February 1, 2017
Tim Burton is a marvelous mosaic maker!  His pieces, including portraits of the Beatles, National leaders and team logos, have been a presence at many SLUG shows.  His latest works now grace the walls of the Moose Jaw Hospital!


Tim, second from the right, and his creations.

The hospital contacted Tim last fall and requested some non-threatening characters for their pediatric ward.  He obliged, and created a number of bright, colourful characters!  These builds are sure to put smiles on everyone's face who sees them!  Well done Tim!
