post-tour and new Neil mailbox...




Got home from the summer Zombie/Slayer tour to a huge pile of mail, much of it for Neil.
I, of course, had very little time to blog in Europe and even less on the Canadian/US run.
it was a beautiful summer, full of festival dates & new people...

my wallet was full of many monies & Zombie guitar picks...

I flew into LAX from Brussels at 10 pm on Monday night and Tuesday morning had me in a car service to meet Neil back at LAX at 10 am. Not much decompression time. Neil was coming off his AMERICAN GODS tour and he was a sight for sore eyes. This boss of mine has been on a health kick and he looked amazing. We had only to remove the beard, and *wolf whistle...

next morning found us over at the Nerdist podcast, where I had to drag him out of the almost-unbreakable bond that formed on air.

meanwhile @ Neverwear, we got the Allan Amato posters in!!

JUST ANNOUNCED AND DEBUTED AT COMICON 2011!!!


a limited edition 18" x 24" poster of our Dream King, mister Neil Gaiman.
we only have 500 of these...
Photograph by ALLAN AMATO, premiere photographer to the stars, this is the very same photo that graces the slip cover of the new edition of AMERICAN GODS. I love this photo of Neil, looking straight out of Deadwood or some other antique past...he will watch me from my wall...
and perhaps murmur writing or cooking advice in my ear while I sleep...


Photobucket

It will arrive to your shipping address cloaked in magic and heavy on the intrigue.
People will want to talk to you.....

the link for the Gashly Crumb Tentacles monsters is run together with the address to your blog (so it doesn't direct properly). Otherwise, great blog entry :-)
