Nuala-CBLDF fundraiser

Been a bad blogger of late, very negligent of posting anything new for a while. To get back on track, im announcing that the Nuala piece that I did for the Sandman 20th anniversary poster a few months ago is now available as part of a fundraiser for the CBLDF, along with some of the other originals donated by other illustrators of the series and poster, and even some sketches by Neil Gaiman himself teaming with other artists. The auction is here.
For those who haven't seen the poster available, its also reproduced in the last volume of Absolute Sandman, Vol. 4, just recently released from Vertigo. This is the volume that reproduces the "Kindly Ones" storyline that I contributed inks to, along with "The Wake". Its a beautiful volume, leatherbound with a sturdy slipcover, and nice to see the pages reproduced at such a large size. It also has a lot of the promo art that Marc Hempel did for the Kindly Ones storyline that I hadn't seen in a long time, not to mention some of his layouts and scripts from Neil. Great production. At $99.99 its a hefty price, but its a hefty volume of goodness, and worth every penny.
