Neil's text this morning...

Hello all,

happy after-hearts day.

I got a text from Neil this morning, updating me about the Heartbreak Hotel show last night in Tampa. Apparently, they sold OUT of all the signed versions of the show print- which is great news-- He was also happy with the rich, matte stock of the print...*o yay!

You can still get this unsigned P. Craig Russell beauty HERE and in the last blog post, there is a $5 off code to use at check out, so you can save yourself some chocolate moneys.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL. Neil & Amanda in Tampa today only. (and new print...)

Neil and Amanda are doing a show in Tampa, Florida on Valentine's Day this year. (That is today as I post this...)

They asked me to help them with the show print.

We approached the mighty king of the drawn line, P. Craig Russell, to illustrate these mad modern lovers. It's a beautiful piece of heartache history, only available at the Tampa show and here.

They are sold unsigned at $40. (i did put up a $5 off code over on the Neverwear page-& on the blog-- if you want to save a fiver)

they measure a glorious 10" x 25" and are printed on a luscious recycled matte stock, my photo does it no justice, I actually inhaled when i first saw.

(when I opened the box)

Our version is the stamped-with-the-Neverwear seal, a run of 200. Proceeds will benefit the GAIMAN FOUNDATION.

Here is the image sent to us by Wayne Alan Harold, the ruler in PCR world, of the work in progress:

WISH prints are ALL out in the world.

ALL of the Wish prints have shipped and there are only a few late-last minute orders that will be arriving after tomorrow.

If you haven't seen yours, PLEASE let me know-- we really tried.

Things do go missing, though and we will help track down. We had one print reported damaged by postal devices and we already got him his new print, so there is customer service over here.

(yeah, that's right, it's ME. haha.) We worked around the clock for 10 days straight, embossing and hand-numbering each one, and the post office runs, they were stuff of legend...

Thank you for the amazing turnout on this print, The Gaiman Foundation will be getting a healthy check and the world will see a glimmer of hope in these sometimes dark, difficult times.

neverwear@gaiman.net ps. we only have a few prints in this run left, the response to this David Mack effort was unbelievable! totally grateful to you all.

If you still want one, get it HERE.

a Neil five-dollar bill for you & WISH shipping updates.

These are words to live by...

Neil Gaiman's spectacular New Year's wish illustrated by water-color master David Mack!

A 11" x 17" image printed right here in Hollywood, USA.

As all of the Neverwear limited edition runs, we will emboss with the official stamp and hand-number them.

A limited edition of 2000.

These were sold unsigned and for the first 3 days, we sold them them at $25.00. **WE ADDED TUESDAY because we are nice.

On Dec 2, 2014, midnight EST, they priced back up to $38.00, which is what we will continue to do with each print run in future. We like to reward the early-orderers with that 25%+ discount.

A portion of all monies collected will go to THE GAIMAN FOUNDATION, Neil & Holly's support of the art community--

The prints will be arriving to the Treehouse in LA on Tuesday or Wednesday, and will ship out immediately. Here is Drew getting the tubes labelled and prepped while I am out east.

They will ship by Dec 11-12, plenty of time for holiday arrival. if you are really concerned about time, please email me: neverwear@gaiman.net We will work out a plan.

I just finished my last show with the Black Keys, and while I will miss the touring terribly, it's time to tend the home gardens. Neil is beyond busy and I need to be off that tour bus to help him.

So! to thank you for all the support and to answer the people who were sad that they missed the pre-sale, here is a five-dollar-off code that you can enter upon check out: THANKY

It's a one-time use per person code, and can be used on anything on the site. Expires Jan. 1, 2015

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE NEVERWEAR SITE.

I'll leave you with Neil's wonderful New Year words:

May your coming year

be filled with magic

and dreams

and good madness.

I hope you read

some fine books

and kiss someone who

thinks you are wonderful.

and don't forget

to make some art-

write or draw

or build or sing

or live

as only you can.

And I hope,

somewhere,

in the next year,

you surprise yourself.

- Neil Gaiman

grateful for good friends...& a happy All Hallow's Read!

it's been awhile.

I know.

i say that EVERY TIME.

your patience has meant a great deal to me while i have been on my various tours this summer. Soundgarden took me around Europe & to Tel Aviv while the Black Keys took me to New York City & all points in between. I just finished an ear-splitting week of rehearsals with Slipknot here in Los Angeles and I flew yesterday to Minneapolis to re-join the Black Keys.

(Truth be told, as much as I love a tour bus, it is getting tougher to leave…)

During all this, I have been working on the new Neverwear website and it's nearly ready.

Neil is in Europe on his very busy book tour.

In the meantime, we are celebrating All Hallow's Read, the scary-book-giveaway holiday that Neil invented and shared with all the reading world.

The talented Kate Laird came up with this design, which we have made into stickers and bookmarks.

I'm sending these out free to independant bookstores, for H'ween giveaways, tell me who your favorite indie bookstore is, I’ll send some their way—

if you want a sticker/bookmark set, including the lil’ trick-or-treating Neil bookmark, illustrated by Sean Von Gorman, please paypal me $1.00 to cover shipping etc. (just one teeny little dollar!) -- while supplies last!

the paypal address is: kitty9thlife@yahoo.com

please include your mailing address. (we do not sell or share these, ever) any questions: neverwear@gaiman.net

Allan Amato's worthy Kickstarter!!

hello loves. just a couple of things to say, as it seems the TimeLords are tricking me out of my share of the clock lately:

1. I just backed the Kickstarter by Allan Amato! It is a worthy use of your time and dollars, an important look into the secret world of artists. Names like Dave McKean, Jon Schnepp (omg, METALOCALYPSE!!), Kent Williams, Grant Morrison, Barron Storey and Neil Gaiman.

loads of delicious rewards for very little moneys. Please support and share the good word.

LOOK HERE.

these are some of my favorite quotes on the project:

Amato creates faces like Donald Westlake creates prose: raw, biting and stark, with a sheen of cool.
-Thomas Jane

Allan Amato is a lot like a wizard: his photos take us places we’ve never been. This is particularly unsettling when you were the one in the photograph.
-Neil Gaiman

Allan’s photos are where science and magic overlap.
-David Mack

I can’t stand to look at myself unless I’ve been photographed by Allan Amato. His dazzling compositions and naked artistry are breathtaking. Plus, he makes me look thin. All right: thinner.
-Kevin Smith

me again, I am so proud of Amato-san for going out and tackling his dream job. Go get em, tiger.

so....

2. Neverwear.net has been down since i was on tour with Soundgarden this last month. It has been caught in a sticky net of webbing and so now the universe forces me to FINISH the upgrade I started. Please stay tuned, and I hope to have it up shortly, in a new form. email with any questions! (neverwear@gaiman.net)
