Zdzisław Beksiński

"A famous Polish painter  specializing in the field of utopian art, Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a ‘Baroque’ or a ‘Gothic’ manner. His creations are mainly two periods, the first period of the works are generally considered to contain expressionistic color, with a strong style of “utopian realism” architecture surreal, like a doomsday scenario worries. The second period more abstract style, with the main features of formalism.”

Beksiński was murdered in 2005.

Neil’s wearing his black velvet Kambriel jacket at the beginning of the video (thank you for not dousing it!), but I couldn’t resist this particular teaming of images.

An ice bucket challenge. Mine. In a novelty bowtie. On the beach. With Death…

Neil Gaiman donates to ALS, does the ice bucket challenge without wasting water, and gets naked because his wife didn’t.

Well, yes. But I’m not going to mention those things just to get people to watch it. Oh, wait…

An ice bucket challenge. Mine. In a novelty bowtie. On the beach. With Death…

amodernmythology asked: I always read Shadow's ethnicity as somewhat ambiguous. Clearly he has some European heritage (from his father), and likely some African heritage (his mother died of sickle cell). But I always thought there was something else, like Native American in there too. Basically he was clearly not white in my head, but trying to pin exactly what the rest of his racial heritage was was deliberately ambiguous. Is this anywhere near accurate?

Very accurate, yes.

fabischafer asked: So your wife has challenged you to participate in the ALS ice bucket challenge. What are you going to do?

…participate in the ice bucket challenge, of course. When your wife challenges you, that’s the wisest course of action.
