coraline after mckean by dholms coraline after mckean by dholms
so anyway,...
as i was getting close to 30K pageviews, i started thinking about what i could do for you guys,...in the way of a 'thank you'. you know?
at the time i was reading 'coraline' and 'wolves in the walls' by neil gaiman and dave mckean. also had just finished 'go ask alice' by anonymous and was really drowning in some cure,...'disintegration' mainly. i was pretty much in a strange state of mind. uhm,...make that stranger than usual. *smirk*
so, i got the idea to do this. a tribute to gaiman and mckean,...and a tribute to you guys.
i know i know,...some of you guys don't like to bring up the 'page view' thing. i understand.
but, it's nice to know someone's looking.
you know?

so thanks.
for looking.

loud love people.

sorry about the cruddy scan. it looks loads better in person. i promise. it's about 12 x 18. i'll be doing a local show down here in valley, al on valentine's day. it'll be there. so if you guys are 'passing through' about then (heh.), stop by. we'll go down to earl's place afterwards and play quarters. :P

Wow, this is bizarre. When I saw this image I knew I remembered it from something, and when I read 'Coraline' I realized I read that book when I was around 12. You captured the style—and as far as I can remember also the story—very well!

well, i have to give dave mckean most of the credit.
i basically used alot of his work on the project for reference
and then threw in some of my own junk.
i love mckean.
he and sam keith are two of my favorites.

thanks!
