LomoAmigo Neil Gaiman Interview Rumble ended almost 4 years ago

The master of the Dreaming, Neil Gaiman, is one of the most popular LomoAmigos to date and we're more than excited to announce that we're doing another interview with him! But we don't want to hog all the glory so we're giving you a chance to ask the critically acclaimed author what you want!

Neil Gaiman, the brains behind Sandman and Coraline, is one of the most influential writers of our time and we’ve been blessed to have been given the chance to interview him and add him to our team of LomoAmigos!

As luck would have it, we have the chance to do an interview with him again! There are so many questions that we’re sure you want to ask him so we’re opening the floor to you guys! Put the question (just one!) that you want to ask right here in the comments and the top ten queries will be answered by the Dreamweaver himself! If that wasn’t enough, 5 Piggies will be awarded to the winners as well!

Choose your questions wisely and good luck everyone!

    You often work with Dave McKean, who has often used photography in his comics and as written about the qualities it contributes to the work. I know you are not currently working on comics at the moment, but would you ever consider using/writing in Lomographic photographys in comics in the future?

    I think you are a story teller of the unconventional, yet your appeal is mainstream--everybody likes you. That makes you an anomaly, because you can be of the indie sort, where the unusual rules the imagination, yet still be very popular among people. How does one keep that balance of being successful but never too commercial?

    I ran into Neil Gaiman in New York in September. I went to NY to attend the New Yorker Festival, and so did he. So I saw him at St. Mark's Bookstore. A friend of mine was absolutely starstruck and managed to ask him, "Are you Neil Gaiman?" He said, with an easy smile, "Yes." My friend said, "I am a great fan. Than you so much for your work." I took a couple of Hipstamatic shots of his back; that's all I could do. I was not as bold as my friend. I wish I could go back in time and invite him to an analogue photo shoot (I had enough cameras in my purse to furnish him and I).

    So my question would just be an invitation.

    If he ever came to Puerto Rico, in the unlikely event he would want a photographic tour/safari with a local, I would be more than honored to be the guide.
