23 year old artist, I'm a huge Homestuck fan, wannabe illustrator, and bisexual girl.

Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman Omnibus V1. Bound in leather, with black edging. Beautiful!

It really is. If you’ve missed it, it’s over 1000 pages long, and has the first half of Sandman in it.

I’m not sure how long this edition is going to be around, so if you want one, you should check it out now.

It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world.

So this is my wish, a wish for me as much as it is a wish for you: in the world to come, let us be brave – let us walk into the dark without fear, and step into the unknown with smiles on our faces, even if we’re faking them.

And whatever happens to us, whatever we make, whatever we learn, let us take joy in it. We can find joy in the world if it’s joy we’re looking for, we can take joy in the act of creation.

So that is my wish for you, and for me. Bravery and joy.

I made this so I can put it up on my wall. You fellow writers are welcome to do the same.
LOOK AT HIS DISAPPROVING FACE. WRITE. NOW.

Do I look THAT grumpy? I probably do. But I like the sentiment.

Give a Tardis to Neil Gaiman for his birthday, he’s 8 again. Once a fan… always a fan ♥

It is true.

Dave McKean and me in 1988. I’m holding the Mekon Award which we had just won for VIOLENT CASES. Nearly 25 years ago. 
Posted for Amanda Palmer because I’m smiling in the photo.

Spent the weekend at Castle Gaiman relaxing gloriously and working on a Top Sekret art project. This is not the Top Sekret art project; this is Neil on a trampoline.

As promised.  

Use it wisely.

I did not know I was being sneakily filmed. It was early in the morning and I was trying to wake myself up….

I gave my first ever commencement speech to the graduating class of 2012 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.

I think I told them everything important that I knew about going out into the world and being an artist, so I may never need to give another one.

neil-gaiman:

The very first signing for Sandman ever. Mike Dringenberg and I were both in New York (Sam Kieth had already quit), Sandman #1 had just come out, and Mike and I went to Jim Hanley’s Universe in Staten Island to sign comics for, what, at most a dozen people…? Which means this was December 1988.
It was the first proper signing I had ever done in the US.

Met the amazing writer Neil Gaiman

Had a wonderful dinner and talked about random parts of our lives. Very excited and grateful for the chance to talk with him one on one!

Pictures to follow! =D

PS, he’s reallynice. You never know with famous people, but just in case you were wondering, he’s an english sweetheart who seems sincerely excited about everything. And he has a few adorable nervous ticks (which helped put me at ease because I was completely anxious about meeting him.)

Neil Gaiman: Neil Gaiman, I love you, and I'm not wearing any clothes.

A reply to my poem, and really beautiful:

therealkatiewest:

If you think seeing a naked woman
is a disappointment
because what you had imagined was so much
better than what was there, may I suggest looking at it in a new way.

Maybe instead of pondering
the tentacles and mouths beneath
her clothes,
you could ponder the bright things
that lurk beneath her skin. You can look
at her glistening pussy lips and wonder,
my god,
             what rivers
must run through her body to create
that overflow of wetness. You can look at her breasts,
dark and sensitive and soft, feeling
in your hands like the greatest of treasures, and come
up with multiple theories as to what lies
beneath them that could possibly make them mould
so perfectly
to your touch and respond so enthusiastically
to your tongue.

Her body is so much more
miraculous and dream-worthy and mysterious
when naked than when she wears clothes.

The mystery has never been what might be
found under her clothes; that is just something of hers
she lets
            you enjoy
because she thinks you to be clever. The mystery
is in imagining what writhes under her skin that makes her body move the way it does;
what worlds are inside her that create a gravitational pull so unyielding;
what makes her body a fertile ground, enough to grow the tenderness
of her gaze, the audacity of her courage, and the ferocity of her tongue.

The mystery has always been
how you plan on maintaining your cleverness
for just long enough
to convince her to let you stay
with her, there,
                        and naked, too, beside her.


(This is a response to a (much better) poem by Neil Gaiman about nudity. The poem is a collaboration with artist Olivia De Berardinis and you can buy a poster of it here. The art is beautiful, and so is the poem, especially if you read it out loud, which I suggest you do. It’s just that, I have never in my life been disappointed when a woman has taken off her clothes for me. I could never be disappointed by nakedness because I know the basics of what to expect, but I will never know what’s underneath the nakedness that makes the person suddenly more mysterious, more miraculous, more dream-worthy, more interesting, more perfect as soon as they’re standing naked in front of me.)
