A friend looked out and saw these little guys on her bird feeder this morning.

Sandman Overture no. 1
a before and after comparison
J.H. Williams III
The top image is J.H. Williams III’s original painting for Sandman Overture no. 1. The bottom image is an inkjet printout of the cover after it had been scanned and digitally enhanced. The digitally enhanced version is the one that appears on the published comic. All of these images are photos that I took while attending the Cartoon Art Museum's Sandman exhibit (held earlier this year). For comparison purposes, I scaled, straightened, and cropped the photos so that they were proportionally identical. Because these images are photographs of framed artwork, glass reflection was an unavoidable embuggerance.
More photos are forthcoming, including a painting by Yoshitaka Amano that was, for my money, the exhibit’s magnum opus.
