i consider it a major failure on my part that i don't already own Neverwhere. i had this intense craving to read it, but realized i'd only borrowed it from the library before.

MUST ACQUIRE THIS BOOK.

presenting the Marquis de Carabas, Sir Richard, and the Lady Door (c) Neil Gaiman

Really good. I just finished reading the book and quite enjoyed it. Drawing a cover for it right now. 

I also came here through your Tumblr, I see you are a fan of "Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" by W. B. Yeats. Or maybe just Equilibrium. Good stuff. :)

oh god i can't believe you drew them!!
I LOVE THAT BOOK.
And Richard looks adorable!

I'm currently listening to it, and it's AWESOME.
(especially angel Islington, whose voice by Benedict Cumberbatch is to die for XP)

You might be interested to know that this week the BBC broadcast a radio drama of Neverwhere, with people like Benedict Cumberbatch as the Angel Islington and Anthony Stewart Head as Mr Croup. It is all available on BBC iPlayer, would definitely recommend giving it a go.

I love that you sticked to the designs in the TV series. You just portrayed them better than the actual costumes. And the actual actors.
That takes talent, being better than the real thing!

I blame you.

Because I was re-reading Neverwhere today, and, well . . . these characters right here are who I had in my head. Especially Richard and Door; the Marquis I picture as slightly sleeker, like a black cat in a pin-striped business suit. Only not like a cat at all.

I hope you're happy.

:B In other words? Your art has invaded my brain. In the best way possible, of course. :B

It's about a guy named Richard who, after helping an injured girl on the streets, loses his identity in the real world and winds up in London Below, which is just as the title suggests--a city below London. There, things happen and that's all I'm gonna say

Stavo impazzendo a scrivere un commento sensato in inglese, ma il tuo profilo mi dice che sei italiana, quindi... *sospiro di sollievo*
Di tutte le fanart su Neverwhere che ho visto, questa di sicuro è una delle mie preferite, perché trovo che tu li abbia colti alla perfezione tutti e tre, nelle espressioni e in tutti i dettagli. Davvero, sono bellissimi e mi danno quella bella sensazione di "oh, sì, sono esattamente loro!"
(Ti ho aggiunta ai watch perché la tua gallery è una meraviglia e disegni cose adorabili su molti fandom che mi piacciono!^^)
