Venice Citizen # 2 (illustrated by John Carmine)

Around 1271, Marco Polo began his expedition to China with his father and uncle.

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.
