Some years back I was invited to do join a dozen other Sandman artists to do a poster. Instead of us all drawing on one giant art board, someone did a rough layout, and we each did separate drawings.
Other than a few convention sketches, it was the first time in . . well . . . twenty years, that I had drawn Sandman.
Here's the highest resolution I could find of the finished poster. A lot of my brush work was lost in the water reflection, but it still came out okay. I was really pleased Neil seemed to like it too.
And lastly, here's the same piece from Bob Chapman's Sandman Gallery edition, along with a sketch I added on the side. This version is probably the most fateful reproduction of the brushwork.
Not that it's amazing brush work or anything, but it's not too shabby ~ given I'm basically a self-taught artists.
