This sketch was a gift I presented to Neil Gaiman when he was in Portland for a reading/book signing event. I reread The Graveyard Book when working through my grief over the death of a most beloved cat. Neil had also lost his beloved dog recently, so I put both our pets in the drawing. It ended up working well with the general concept of the composition. Neil was such a gracious host- he signed books for 5 hours in the sweltering summer heat. All while taking the care to connect with each and every person who waited in line. Truly an inspirational human being.
