Fine artist Devin Crane and Burton's careers have many parallels. Both attended the prestigious CalArts (California Institute of the Arts) in which Walt Disney established in Los Angeles. Although Devin Crane attended 20 years later, many of Burton's teachers were still teaching and Crane was honored to learn from them. Walt Disney Feature Animation was also where both began their careers as animators. Crane's painting was inspired by Jack's love interest Sally in the movie 'Nightmare Before Christmas.' 'I wanted to take my painting one step further and imagine her and Jack's story beyond the movie. My painting 'A Little Black Dress For Her Date With Jack' portrays her preparation for one of their dates together! Combining my love of fashion, I wanted to paint Sally creating a very chic and perfect little black dress. Robe petit noir.' Devin has portrayed this famous character in his own recognizable high fashion approach.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Artist Devin Crane continually finds new ways of interweaving high fashion and luxury branding to amplify the compelling artistry in his paintings. Devin has been a professional in the film industry for the past 15 years. His work has been featured in esteemed publications such as Palace Costes and Voci Magazine.
