Actress # 1 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In Fear Of Falling, this actress is one of the women performing in “The Typhoid Mary Blues,” written and directed by Todd Faber.

Todd feels pretty hopeless about the play and decides to give up, but changes his mind after encountering Morpheus in a dream. As Janet is about to tell the actors that they play is being cancelled, Todd appears re-invigorated and is once again excited about the play.

This actress appears on page 10 of “Fear Of Falling,” which was originally published in Vertigo Preview # 1. She is in the first panel and is in the middle of the stage.

Max took an interesting approach to this character. I did not envision the actress to look as she does in this portrait, but that’s one of the things I like about this project, especially for characters that are not well defined in the published comic. Max’s eye for details and his well thought out line work make this a really unique portrait. She reminds me of someone…and I really wish I could remember who.
