One day, I’ll make it a full painting.
For now, it’s merely a sketch to memorize.

Too much change in my life. Too stressful days. Panic, fear, uncertainty: all these are my regular guests. I reach out to something I can hold on to. I MAKE SKETCHES.

If you’ve read the “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman, you can get the “Wednesday” reference. I used to have a client - an astonishingly stylish man in his fifties - whom I do respect a lot. He is one of the most tactful and picturesque men I’ve met in my whole life. I’m quitting that job now, and most likely I won’t see him any more; tomorrow I shall tell him that (if I have enough balls for telling such thing out loud instead of just staring in awe). But now I’m sketching his features into a doodle of Odin, because he totally fits the description: a tall, grey-haired man with stunning eyes, who can easily turn out to be some outcast god. I want to remember him.
I want to remember him LIKE THIS.

So I made this because of this.

Feel free to use if you are planning on seducing a writer. Or writer-like person. Or anyone, really.

I thought, I wonder if anyone’s made one, yet. So I looked, and there it was. I love it when things move at the speed of internet.

Remember Neil Gaiman I’ve drawn recently? Just to show you that was partly traditional drawing… this. I’ve captured the most dull section of the process - filling the gaps, so I made the speed x 4. This is the finishing part of the sketch. Hopefully, tumblr video can allow you to see the details; also, I rotate the sketch A LOT when I’m working on smth in traditional technique…

I’m a bit unwell about the fact I had to use someone’s else music to reduce the rubbish sound of high-speed video stream. Hopefully Emilie Autumn won’t suffer from this; it’s one of her most gorgeous live recordings, anyway ;3

@neilhimself, in mixed, VERY MIXED media.
More of an experiment.
Just because I’m sleepy.
And “Where’s Neil When You Need Him” is on my playlist at the moment…
