I just saw the preview for Mirrormask in the previews section of the movie I’m watching tonight, and all I could think was: “This is a Dave McKean movie!” The movie is written by Neil Gaiman who is a popular fantasy and comics writer. The preview mentioned Neil Gaiman’s name, and it mentioned the Jim Henson company. Dave McKean is an artist who did many Sandman covers, and the two of them collaborated on some good graphic novels. After looking up the movie, it turns out that it’s directed by Dave McKean. He uses a distinctive artistic style in the works I’ve seen. He uses a collage type of composition for his art, and uses that style to make a strong impact. I can’t wait to see the movie. It’s probably going to be a little too visually fringy for most people, but I don’t care, I’m riding the long tail, and loving it!
