i woke up at 4:30 in the morning to line up for Neil Gaiman’s last book signing in gateway yesterday.
hardcore, i know. i asked jake to pass my plate for me so i could skip class for this and i’m glad i did.
after hours of waiting, there were finally just about 3-5 people in line front of me. Neil looks up from signing, scans the line, looks at me and grins.
“oh, hello again.”
OMG! he remembers me!
i hand him a rather hastily gift-wrapped bottle of eficascent oil and tell him it’s for when his arm gets sore.
god, this guy can smile.
he hugs me and kisses me on the cheek.
and the staff didn’t get a shot of it! all they got were pictures of me talking to him. bloody hell.
as he was leaving gateway, the crowd cheers him on and starts edging closer to touch him or whatever. i held back, not wanting to be part of a potentially dangerous mob and Neil Gaiman reached out to me for a split-second-pseudo-handshake.
i wan’t even trying to get his attention, but i got it anyway.
that man hasn’t got a shred of arrogance in him. he has every right to, but he doesn’t.
i want him to be my ninong. 🙂

still in a somewhat euphoric state, so forgive my incoherence.
we got to Rockwell at around 9 in the morning. we thought that was pretty early as it is.
apparently not. there was this big ass line staring at us when we got out of the cab. some of these people were there since 5 am. o_0
was 135th in line (eep!). and despite signing an average of 3 items for the 134 people in front of me, he was still uber pleasant when i handed him my copy of Stardust.
love him just as much as i love his work now. haha. i’ve never been so fucking starstruck in my life.
pics thanks to noelle, btw. who, in our group of 10 (?) was the only one with a camera. ^__^

i’d originally planned it to be a mosaic, but the only time i had to do it was the day before the deadline. eep.
done in water colour instead. except for the background, which is in poster paint.
A tribute to Sandman and Jill Thompson.
Watercolour, watercolour pencils, lined with ink.
Pen and Ink on Bristol Board
This started out as a curly doodle at the back of a notebook, which evolved into a wing, which evolved into a woman with wings. XD I liked how it turned out so i re-did it on non-lined paper.

Coloured pencils on sketchpad paper. I was originally planning to ink and colour this but I like how it turned out this way.
This was supposed to be a full-colour, more comprehensive illustration of the first one but I suck at planning and I ran out of space. Haha. Coloured pencils, lined with ink on sketchpad paper.
