Mark Ryden Inspired Pin Toppers

I just wanted to share some pin toppers I've made - totally inspired by my love for Mark Ryden's art! These pins are very much on the happy side although I can't speak for Mark - seems his art is often dark and mysterious. I wanted to capture the childlike quality that I find so endearing in much of his work. Balloon Animals for your pincushion it is!!!

Mark Ryden Art ~ gosh does he have a vision or what? I am so in awe of his work!

So I have admired Mark Ryden's work for a while now and decided to make this mosaic on flickr of just a few of his lovely paintings. I'm really wanting his book right now!!!! It's chock full of fascinating art but it's $395 - ouch!!!! Maybe someday.........
