Author Clive Barker, whose books launched the Hellraiser and Candyman film franchises, is also an accomplished artist. His artwork has accompanied several of his books, like Thief Of Always and the Abarat series.
Today, Barker posted a photo of a painting he did called “Death of the Endless” based on the character Death from Neil Gaiman‘s popular comic book series, The Sandman. A black and white version of this painting was the frontispiece for the 1996 short-story anthology novel, The Sandman: Book of Dreams.
Check out the full-color version of the painting here below.
Here’s what Barker wrote on Facebook about the painting, which is signed with the year 1993.
