Sculpting with Neil Gaiman

Dreamed before 1995 by Rick Veitch

INTRODUCTION

Rick Veitch's collection of dream-comics Rabid Eye is mostly one-pagers--concise, punchy, lived not interpreted--as in the page on the left. But in an appendix narrated by his dream-self who refers to his day-self in third person as "Roarin' Rick", we get context for a few sample dreams. This one, of sculpting with his friend Neil Gaiman, turns out to be predictive, indeed full of multiple psychic hits.

Makes me wonder about the hundreds of other dreams lacking such notes! Oh well, that's my thing. ----Chris Wayan
