This is more of a Sam Kieth retrospective than anything else. When the opportunity arose to commission Sam I could not pass it up. I've been a fan of his work for 20 years and getting a chance to have a custom made piece by Sam was a real collecting dream come true.

Death seems a good central character for this piece, with trophies of several characters that Sam worked on over the years. He even rendered them in color. That little extra touch really brings the piece to "life", as it were.

Update: Many thanks to Neil Gaiman for the shout out in his Tumblr account. His link let to almost 3,000 people reblogging, sharing, and commenting on the piece in the first 8 hours alone. You can see it here

Yet another really clever use of your theme. Use Death as the wall owner and the heads being other Keith characters was an excellent idea. Congratulations.

You recognize a good theme when it spawns fruits like this, very similar but definitely different from the original idea. Sam Kieth is a genius - but you need two of them to produce such a gem. Money is required, but not enough to get to this level. Congrats.

I think this is the perfect Kieth commission. The characters are all true to model but are so obviously Sam Kieth. And then the choices of characters just make it so much more special. Well done.
