The Sandman: Book of Dreams

Author Clive Barker, whose books launched the Hellraiser and Candyman film franchises, is also an accomplished artist. His artwork has accompanied several of his books, like Thief Of Always and the Abarat series.

Today, Barker posted a photo of a painting he did called “Death of the Endless” based on the character Death from Neil Gaiman‘s popular comic book series, The Sandman. A black and white version of this painting was the frontispiece for the 1996 short-story anthology novel, The Sandman: Book of Dreams.

Check out the full-color version of the painting here below.

Here’s what Barker wrote on Facebook about the painting, which is signed with the year 1993.

Here’s a painting I made called Death of the Endless. It’s a character painted for Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman comics.

In 1990, Barker wrote the introduction to The Sandman: The Doll’s House, the second volume in Gaiman’s Sandman series.

  1. He is a good artist – but his interpretation of Death does not appeal to me. One of Death’s characteristics is that she is attractive – from the old tale that once you see her you will be irresistibly drawn to her. This picture does not have that effect for me.

  2. I think that she’s attractive, and it’s a great drawing. My only issue is that she doesn’t look very happy. Death always has a smile, she’s always chipper and bright, and she loves us all. She looks a little creepy here. Still great though, and Clive Barker-Neil Gaiman is win-win!
