If you’re doing makeup for a Tim Burton movie, you go through a lot of eyeliner. The Mad Hatter, Edward Scissorhands, and even some characters not played by Johnny Depp drape the windows to their souls in curtains of mascara or eyeshadow. It’s small wonder, then, that Burton collects Margaret Keane’s paintings of tots wide-eyed with the terrible knowledge of childhood. He’s channeled his enthusiasm into Big Eyes, a biopic of the artist; along with stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, Burton will be discussing his love of Keane’s work at the 92nd Street Y tonight. Don’t blink.
