As they began their several citizens of Venice watched the caravan leave the city. This man is one of those who watched the travelers leave.
This character appears in Sandman # 39, page 13, panel 3.
This is another wonderful portrait from John. In the published comic this character is barely more than a human shaped outline in the far background. John basically designed this character based on the shape of the character in the comic and gave him personality and a life that isn’t really there in the comic. I also really like that he drew the background. I love the gate and think it fits perfect with the time period of this portrait.
