Something non-tech related

I recently found the following picture on my daughter’s bedroom wall.

Wolves in the Walls

Wolves in the Walls

I’d recently read the children Neil Gaiman’s Wolves in the Walls and Isobel was obviously inspired (If you you don’t know the story, it says ‘When the wolves come out of the walls, it’s all over’). So I posted on Twitter to Neil Himself. Now Neil Gaiman has over 400,000 followers, so I was quite surprised when he retweeted it.

It’s interesting to see how powerful twitter is – I had about ten new people follow me right after this, and his message was itself retweeted about 20 times (with some nice added comments, I thought).

And just when I thought my fatherly pride couldn’t increase, he mentioned it on his blog, too.

I think that this amateur Wolves In the Walls fanart is my favourite photograph of recent vintage though.

In a way, it’s similar to getting your picture printed in a favourite comic. Except, of course, it’s way awesomer because it’s Neil ‘Scary-Trousers‘ Gaiman!
