http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandman

“The Sandman is a mythical character in central and northern European folklore who brings good dreams by sprinkling magical sand onto the eyes of people while they sleep at night.

E.T.A. Hoffmann wrote an inverse depiction… which showed how sinister such a character could be made. According to the protagonist’s nurse, he threw sand in the eyes of children who wouldn’t sleep, with the result of those eyes falling out and being collected by the Sandman, who then takes the eyes to his iron nest on the Moon, and uses them to feed his children.”

Gregg Gunn
Creative Director :: Blind
Hi. My name is Greg Gunn. I’m a director, animator and real life person residing in Los Angeles. After graduating from Otis College of Art + Design in 2006, I co-founded a multidisciplinary directing collective named Three Legged Legs. Together, we created commercials, music videos, short films and lots of original content. And in 2011, I joined the wonderful folks at Blind as Creative Director. In the winter, I wear a beard to keep warm. Notable interests include storytelling, problem solving and drawing drawings.
