Faery # 5 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Today is Max's birthday and to celebrate I wanted to update the blog with one of my favorite portraits he has done so far.

Max did an awesome job with this Faery!!!

This Faery is one of the faeries who attended the first performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on June 23rd 1593 in Wilmington, England near The Long Man of Wilmington, which Morpheus also called Wendel’s Mound.

He can be seen in Sandman # 19, page 8, panel 3. He’s very easy to spot.

This is a wonderful portrait. In person it sort of glows!!!!

Happy Birthday Max!!!

Corpse From Rachel’s Dream # 2 (illustrated by Russel Roehling)

This man is one of the many dead people that haunt Rachel’s nightmares of the end of the world and civilization as we know it.

In the Destruction story from Endless Nights, Rachel has dreams of the world ending. Sometimes it’s by fire, sometimes by ice and sometimes all the deaths are caused by some disease. In Rachel’s dream, she sees this corpse while walking through a mall. This man died while sitting on a bench inside the mall.

He can be seen in Endless Nights, in the Destruction story, “On The Peninsula” on the first page in panel 4.

Russel did an amazing job with this corpse. The shading and details of this painting make it seem almost realistic and horrifying. It’s beautiful and gross at the same time. I love it!!!!.
