Old sketch, new image. You can find the previous version here.
update: I’ve changed the image of Neil quite a bit (and hence the collage of Neil and Susanna as well). Check it out.
If you haven’t read Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell – What the hell are you waiting for? It ain’t gonna read itself! End public service announcement.
Meanwhile, here’s another portrait. Along with Neil Gaiman, Clarke is one of my absolute favorite novelists writing today. Cheers!

update#3: Neil has since changed his avatar, but for those interested, here’s a screenshot of my image in use.
update#2: I’ve changed the image quite a bit. It was really more of a “work-in-progress” before. I hope you guys dig it!
update: I was stunned and flattered to receive an email from Mr. Gaiman this evening. Neil enjoyed the caricature and requested to use the image as his avatar on Twitter. Naturally I’m excited and honored. To Neil’s friends and fans: Welcome! Please feel free to poke around the site, and don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks again, Neil!
My hero, Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline, Neverwhere and a zillion other modern masterpieces of fantasy fiction.
