Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer Let Me Paint Them

While my Dia de los Muertos Kickstarter is going along swimmingly (see link on sidebar if you want to be a part of it!) I’ve been painting a few portraits here and there just to keep the creative momentum going.

I’ve painted pet portraits for Neil Gaiman before, but I was super excited he said “of course” I could paint him and Amanda Palmer as part of my series.

This one scares me a little bit. But in a good way.

    That is cool; love his eyes… I wish I could make this tour, not only to get the shirt (!!) but also to see the suggestive banana-eating, naked on stage nightly. Oddly, the night they’re in my neck of the woods I’ll be working the silent auction at my kids’ school’s Dia de los Muertos Dance.
