Loved this story... I honestly have to say I had a very strong feeling upon seeing this piece that it was in reference to Graveyard Book. The title confirmed it!

I know NADA about digital art, and the only things I know about Gaiman is from Tori Amos' lyrics - but this is a great piece, I love the whole mood, the details, the darkness, but most of all, the "thing" rising from the grave.
