Thank you! I liked drawing it-- haha, one of the only things I've ever done in straight up pen & ink, without any pencil to outline it. :D

Blame my art teacher, for without him, I would not have touched colour all school year.

But thank you.

This is neat! I feel like it belongs in a Sandman comic somewhere.

Thank you-- that's a huge complement. And that would really, really awesome.

Those comics are the best things pretty much EVER.

I know, right? I love me some Neil Gaiman, regardless of them medium he writes in. Prose, comic scripts- he's just got such a mind! And he also tends to collaborate with super-awesome people (Dave McKean! Jill Thompson!), which helps.

Heeeeeeeeeeeelllllllzzzzzz yes.

Everything about this comment is win, fair maiden. I just finished The Sandman a few weeks ago, and I'm still tripping my balls out because I believe in magic and fairies again. And not the San Fransisco kind of fairies; the magic, grant you wishes kind that are kind of dicks.

Tripping. Balls.

I read the entire series about a year and a half ago, and while it didn't quite make me believe in the fair folk again, it certainly broadened my horizons in other ways, as far as narrative structural possibilities.

The book itself was pretty magical. -shrug- I suppose it's the depth and complexity of the story line that really caught me. I suppose if I had the time, I could really go through all of the books, and out line an extremely detailed map about the sheer amount of connections through the book, but I'm just too lazy.

Ah! That reminds me of something else I envy in him as a writer. The connections he creates. I remember in the beginning of a book-- I think it was "Speaker for the Dead,"-- that Orson Scott Card talks about how difficult it was to connect all of the children in what-er-face's family. And the same goes for any book, I would imagine. Connecting people takes a certain kind of artist; a certain type of human. You have to understand how other people react to situations, and know the character you've created well enough to accurate portray their feelings truthfully, and the connections with other people that they would establish...

Mother fuck that is getting long and goin no where. I'm too lazy to delete that, and I wrote it, so woe betide me if I don't send all that claptrap to you.

In essence: Neil Gaiman is a BAMF, and I would love him up and down any day of the week, given the opportunity. The Sandman rocks.

While you lost me for a bit in the middle there, I agree wholeheatedly with the 'essence.'

I lot me a bit there too. I think at some point in time I understood where I was going with it, then my brain said "TL;DR" and gave up halfway through. That accounts for the convoluted mess of words.

yeaaaaaah.

It's pretty trippy. Also, all the empty space between the rainbow thing above him was cut out and replaced with some textures that I was working on in my art class. (Which is where I made this.) It was pretty fun. I'm in love with my art teacher.

Ooh! I see what you mean, now. That's neat as hell. I would have been terrified to cut chunks out of something like this.

lol, teacher's pet. (Who am I kidding, I was my art teacher's favourite in high school.)

It was really not awesome before it was coloured, so I wasn't too afraid. I love cutting things up, and reconnecting things... I love frankensteining anything I can get my hands on. -laugh-

XD Oh man. You are more experimental than I. I always feel weird about using more than one thing on an image.

Eh. I'm bored, and not terrible sentimentally attached to a lot of my art work, so I'm willing to shit it up. -shrug- I'm sort of a horrible person, like that. No emotional value for anything.

XD I don't know if "sentimentally attached" would be the right word. I don't mind shoehorning nonsensical speech-bubbles into pictures I had to have spent hours on, at least. It's just that I don't experiment that much with the mediums I use. It's a good thing.

Haha, I do that all the time! Or work an hour on a face and half the body, then get bored and give them noodle arms and two sets of fins. I'm a terrible, terrible art guy. UGH I HATE THE WORD GUY

Anyways. I have two mediums: Watercolour, pencil. I'm lame.
