Death And Delirium 004 – The Endless on Abbey Road

June 1, 2010


The Endless on Abbey Road - Destruction, Delirium, Death and Dream

The Death and Delirium Collection

Artist:   Tom Fowler
Sandman’s The Endless – Destruction, Delirium, Death and Dream with Mervyn Pumpkinhead 
Date: March 3, 2010
Location: Ottawa, Ontario

Note(s): After Tom went above and beyond in his first commission piece I just had to get a second one.  Took me awhile to come up with a suitable subject for him but it all fell into place once I saw this Destruction piece

Death, Delirium and the iconic Abbey Road image were my only instructions.  And as always, Tom doesn’t disappoint with adding his little humourous touches (check out Mervyn) that I wasn’t expecting.

Note(s): Wow, been a long time since I posted an update. 

Here’s one from Tom Hodges whose work I became familiar with primarily  due to his appearances on the Comic Geeks Speak podcasts.  I’m actually not a Star Wars fan but I did have a little crush on Leia back in the day.
