Everything in Temple of Art has been a collaboration– from the art pieces themselves, to the book and gallery show, to the back and forth conversations in the forthcoming documentary film.
This series of pieces featuring author Neil Gaiman are no exception.
Temple of Art director Allan Amato photographed a striking portrait of Neil, which then was passed around and painted on by David Mack, Bill Sienkiewicz, Jim Mahfood, Jason Shawn Alexander and Neil’s stunningly talented wife, Amanda Palmer. The results are these five amazing takes on the original photograph, each a little magical and otherworldly in their own right.
You can pick up these collaborative art wonders as rewards over at our Kickstarter, which is now rounding the bend in its last week! Not only that, but you can also pre-order the $25 HD download of the film, or pick up the finished Temple of Art book, the DVD, and loads more! Take a look.
While you’re waiting for the film, our trusty Temple of Art ninja Elisabeth Evans shot and edited some fantastic footage of our panel at Comic-Con last month– hear Dave McKean, Barron Storey, Kent Williams, David Mack, Bill Sienkiewicz, Grant Morrison, Stephanie Inagaki and more wax poetic about their experiences with making art:
We also have a giant teetering pile of original art and art print rewards left over at our Kickstarter, including pieces by David Mack, Barron Storey, Jim Mahfood, JAW Cooper and more!
There’s also a super-fancy reward where Allan Amato will create a Temple of Art portrait of you, which will then be painted on and otherwise artistically emblazoned upon by the the fabulous Stephanie Inagaki. Check it out.
