15 Pieces of Jill Thompson’s Pitch Art For A Never Made Sandman Movie Trilogy

eye candy


Jill Thompson, who also did art for the comic series prepared a number of watercolor paintings for its pitch presentation, to help communicate to movie executives what the visual tone of the story (planned as a trilogy of films) might be like. The movies never got made, but Thompson’s original art for each picture is available for around $800-$900 each on Cadence Comic Art.

I’ve picked out a few of the less spoilery or foreshadowy ones to feature here, but if you’re a fan who’s already finished the series, you’ll undoubtedly love seeing the rest.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
