This weekend, I worked on the 4th SANDMAN covers for DC Vertigo. It will be sent out to my editor early Monday morning, and my Sandman gig is done.

It is a Neil Gaiman classic with a Japanese twist. Beautiful interior drawings were done by P. Craig Russell.The first issue is due out in stores on November 5th. I hope you go to a comic book store near you to pick it up.

I will post all the covers to the site soon. (As always, I am slow on updating Illustration section.) Big thank you to Neil, Karen and Pornsak.
