P. Craig Russell’s original art for page 12 of “Death and Venice”—from the Death story that appeared in THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS. This is the last page that we have from this story and it’s one of the artist’s personal favorites. Pencils and inks by PCR with hand-lettering directly on the board. We’re currently offering this fantastic PCR original page via eBay.
Thanks to Salon for the nice mention of the collected edition of the opera adaptations:
Published over the past three decades in installments, this ravishing experience is now available as a clothbound set. Russell, the Maxfield Parrish, Aubrey Beardsley and Cecil B. DeMille of the comics world all rolled into one, selects the operas that best lend themselves to his lush, intricate, fantastical style: “Parsifal,” “Salome,” “Ariane and Bluebeard,” etc. Turning these pages while listening to recordings of these works is a little like seeing a production unfettered by any earthly limits — and liberated from the stilted acting of so many singers. Russell’s visual storytelling technique is superb, with a faint touch of campiness that seems very appropriate here. Only the snootiest opera buff would turn up his nose at this marvel.
