Concept Art From The Sandman Movie That Never Was

A long while ago Neil Gaiman pitched a three-part cinematic adaptation of his comic book SANDMAN to Warner Bros. The project never got off the ground and was then canceled. What we're left with is this stunning concept art by SANDMAN and BEASTS OF BURDEN illustrator Jill Thompson.

This art is up for sale and available for ogling. Gaiman announced the release of this concept art on Twitter: "Some years ago, I had to pitch/explain SANDMAN to Warners. Jill Thompson illustrated the pitch. That art's for sale."

View the entire gallery over at Cadence of Comic Art. Each image is priced from $800-$900. I only wish I could afford even a corner of one of these beautiful pictures,

Fables Fun

I've been having great fun flatting Fables for Lee - you can check out my flats for #119 over here.

I've just started following @fablescon on Twitter. Its the official source of information (and daily competitions) on the Fabletown and Beyond 2013 convention being held in Rochester, Minnesota in March 2013. I would love to attend - so if anyone wants to fly me out I'd be most grateful :)
