Quote Of The Day: 06/30/2019

Looking back, the process of coming up with the Lord of Dreams seems less like an act of creation than one of sculpture: as if he were already waiting, grave and patient, inside a block of white marble, and all I needed to do was chip away everything that wasn't him.
Neil Gaiman, Sandman trade paperback



Your Comments:
not even a comparison trying to compare Michelangelo to Gaiman. Like comparing Einstein to a biology student.

Well, I think he was referencing that on purpose, not ripping off.

Michelangelo's words are sort of a truism of subtractive sculpture at this point (as opposed to clay sculpting which is additive).

Of course, Gaiman's whole M.O. is to take classic legends and works that have gone before and meld them together into his own work. It's one of the things I like about him as it gives depth. I wouldn't mind if he footnoted more often though.

Of course, Gaiman didn't give credit to Michaelangelo when he hijacked the Master's quotes:

"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it." ~ Michelangelo

"The best artist has that thought alone Which is contained within the marble shell; The sculptor's hand can only break the spell To free the figures slumbering in the stone." ~ Michelangelo
