I’m Having Crazy Dreams Again…|

I’ve been a fan of Neil Gaiman for a long time and have been wanting to do a portrait of some kind involving him for quite a while.  The thing is, I could never quite decide on how exactly I wanted to go about it.  Earlier today I caught wind of a performance of “Psycho” with his wife Amanda Palmer and as I listened to it this is the image that popped into my mind.  I fell in love with it and just had to get it down on paper as soon as possible.  A few references and an hour later I had that smirk just the way I wanted it.

Zombie Neil here, for lack of a better term, is likely to get a finalized drawing sometime in the near future. As soon as I can get a little more spare time to really sit down and take some time with it.  I can only hope that Mr. Gaiman can enjoy my slightly skewed take on his image thanks to his wonderfully creepy performance.

    Amazing job, Tim! Perhaps a series of sketches on The Endless are in order, especially Lady Death? Wonderous artistry, sir!
