Me signing and sketching at True Believers Comics & Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico ca. 2003. The drawing of Progressive Insurance salesperson Flo (done for a comic strip) was Photoshopped in some years later. As I believe in going with the Flo, additional color images are included.

Looking at some of my original Sandman pages at a convention back in the mid-nineties (which I was selling for $100-200 each!), Neil Gaiman told me that my stuff really did look better in black and white. Well, here are four panels from issue 57 (featuring Lyta Hall and Mazikeen) so that you can decide for yourself!

Some of my pencil art – a Rose Walker sequence – from The Sandman, issue 65, page 5. My notes regard asking inker Rich Case to finish a banister (I was probably running late, as usual) and suggesting a sound effect in panel four (which Neil nixed). Rose's word balloon in said panel was ultimately moved to the top, which was a good call (visual flow, you know).
