Author Writes Poem for a Fan’s Tattoo
Neil Gaiman has written children’s fiction including Stardust and Coraline (both of which were adapted into films), adult fiction like American Gods, and the popular Sandman graphic novel series. And now he’s also written a poem for one of his fan’s new ink creation. When Burton Oliver sent Gaiman an email requesting that he write a poem for his back piece, Gaiman not only agreed to write the poem, but also got comic book artist David Mack to design the rest of the tat. Gaiman asked that the tattoo design be used to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The screenprint is available online, with all proceeds donated to the CBLDF.
