This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman. During college, I became obsessed with his Vertigo series, The Sandman, and later loved his novels Neverwhere, American Gods and others. Meeting up with him deep in the bowels of the Javits Center was a surreal experience, Martin said, and I agree with him. I'm very happy to have this portrait of Mr. Gaiman to add to my body of work. The photo will be used in an ad for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Thanks to Charles Brownstein for making it happen!
