Neil Gaiman signing in Easons
Attached photo is of me getting some of my stuff signed by the great Neil Gaiman (creator of Sandman, Neverwhere, Stardust). I was at his book signing the day before Hallowen, along with two nice folk from Boards.ie (Brendan and Nichola). Gaiman arrived around seven, read an excerpt from his newly-released The Graveyard Book, had a humourous Q&A, and eventually signed people's swag (he was very generous about how many items you could have him sign; I got my copy of The Graveyard Book, Neverwhere, a poster and my Merv Pumpkinhead bust-up signed).
My minute-or-so with Neil seems almost like it never happened. I don't even fucking remember saying much to him! He's a great chap nonetheless, and I'll never forget his amazing voice either...
There's two other photos I have of me with him, and several others taken by Brendan, but I'm not sure if he'd like me linking to his Flickr account, so you'll have to do with that one.
In other news, I got my first tablet on Monday; an Aiptek 600U Premium Slim, and its pretty nifty. I'll post up some art I drew with it soon, but for now, just a quick sketch I drew with it;
