Neil's Mailbox, part one

Some very interesting items pass through this mailbox on their way to rest with
Mr. Neil, and I thought I would post a few of them from time to time.
Since our hero travels so very much, I thought it would also do him a tiny service, a mini-preview of what people are sending his way.

this is the first in a series I will do, we’ll call it: Neil’s Mailbox.

I love this reimagined Morpheus from Cody in Montana (surely with a nod to both Warhol & Shepard Fairey) :

and just today, this arrived from Emily in the UK, a beautiful little reprint of a War Department typescript guiding the Americans to "native customs" in Britain in WWll.

Full of hilarious little tidbits, I scanned some pages for you, Boss.
Another chapter is titled “ British reserved, not unfriendly”---love it!

and another postcard from one of Neil’s Clarion kids, Monica, who is traveling about the world, here she writes from Fiji....

will be going through the mailbox as things get piled up.

thanks everyone for making my dream job even dreamier---

to send Neil mail:
Neil Gaiman
c/o Cat Mihos
4470 W. Sunset Blvd. #339
Los Angeles, CA 90027

ps the NEVERWEAR contest outlined HERE is up until Friday, then we'll give out some prizeys:

a Kitty-made BATMAN magnet:

Nice new look Miss Kitty! And I sure do know about that mailbox!

Ticia said...

I'm with Quiche, I love the new look. And I love love love the Morpheus print.

Your magnets are magical. The fact that you create them from damaged comics floors me. They're special and individual and different. Truly inspired.

The DREAM image is a hoot!

i love the last sentence on british slang, "if you want a beer quick, you had better ask for the local pub." lol.

what a great post :)

EmilyLady said...

It's good to know this kind of thing is fun, instead of annoying.

Kitty Cat said...

it is fascinating, lil' Emily. as Quiche can attest.
the creativity and generosity of Neil's fans is inspiring.
DG, are you feeling better!?

Norm said...

Now I want that Morpheus on a t-shirt.

Kitty Cat said...

well, sad to say, DREAM is a DC-owned character---
it is a beautiful image, one that makes me happy too,
but I can't pursue that...we love it COdy!

Yoga Gal said...

Love the "Dream"T-shirt but looks alot like the Obama "Hope" T-shirt you may have copy right problems! Great stuff!

tsgeisel said...

I am looking at "borrowing" the Dream image for an LJ icon. If the afforementioned Cody could supply an email address I would happily credit him, should he so desire.

And now I want to see Desire (and all the Endless) in that style.
