A grumpy Morpheus
A grumpy Morpheus

Do you remember a few weeks ago, when I posted a picture of Morpheus and Death from Sandman? Well, apparently that inspired someone else to commission this drawing, of Joel as Dream and Abbie as a highly-excitable Death. I am forever amused by these roles for the two of them, especially since Joel looks like he’s trying SO very hard to be dour and serious and Abbie is completely ruining it for him.

    I did not actually enjoy any of the commisions so far (not a commentary on your ability to draw, it is just not my thing) but that one was awesome!

    Yes, Abbie, you’ve totally got the gloom part of goth right. In a completely not at all sort of way. *snickers uncontrollably*

    For some reason I always see Abbie as more a “Delirium” type. “Butterflies and pink shoelaces… tesserat bubbles with milk…”

    I think Abbie’s one of those people who’s only really sad when she runs out of sugar.

    I just realized there might be a real-life Abbie: Boxxybabee on youtube (warning: videos seem very much like a babbling brook of thought)

    When I first looked at that picture, I thought Joel was dressed as Neil Gaiman…

    it is kind of true that Dream looks a heck of a lot like Neil Gaiman,…wonder if Neil has a sister that looks like Death or Delirium,…..lol.

    The reference to Sandman and Morpheus immediately brought to mind PS238 and Murphy. I KNOW you recognize them if you’re a fan of Aaron Williams. It’s so funny that Abby is into the Goth scene, given how bright and cheerful she is, though that brings to mind one Abigail Sciuto of NCIS.

    I’m a huge Sandman fan, and I was drinking soda when I saw this page. It’s hard to fangirl-squee when you have Pepsi coming out your nose…

    Two thumbs up to Mark for not meta-gaming when he learned that Myers was double-crossing Tanaka.
