The Endless


If you have any interest in comics and graphic novels, you really oughta read Neil Gaiman's Sandman. Maybe a couple of times. I just read "Endless Nights" which is a collection of stories about his main characters, The Endless, accompanied by knock-out artwork. Written years after he finished the Sandman series proper, Gaiman revisits these characters with his writing skills sharpened to pointy perfection. So with hat off to Neil, here are this morning's breakfast sketches: Dream, Delirium, and Death.

Yes, Neil Gaiman's Sandman graphic novels are excellent. As for your drawings, I love your rendition of Delirium... it's so kooky, just like her!

Maybe you can do a children's book together with Neil? (Jill Thompson did a kid's book called The Little Endless, based on his characters, but she did both the writing and illustrations, I believe.)

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,
Kenny Mah.

Try reading his short story Snow Glass Apples. Its an adult fairy tale version to the classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves story.

See if you can reinvent the main characters as told by Gaiman. Should be fun :)

GREAT job on Death . . . my personal dream girl, and every guy who read those stories.

You nailed all three actually, and gave them personal touches.
