I have been reluctant to sell original art from Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen, but more than a year after the book’s release, I think it’s time to tentatively let a few pages go.
I may change my mind tomorrow and take them down. Or else raise the price. We’ll see.
But for now, the following are available for purchase for US$350 each (including postage).

Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen page 21:
Poor old Sam is late for a deadline And so, while his wife Sally sleeps alone, Sam sits staring at his computer screen, stuck on page 17 of his Lady Night script. Sam’s predicament here is uncomfortably familiar from my days writing scripts for DC Comics. As a consolation, I indulged myself with the decorated bedspread and curtains in panel 1. Drawing details like this – and slowly, meditatively shading – are among my favourite parts of the process.
