Ellie Marsten’s Mother (illustrated by John Carmine)

On June 10th, 1916, in Toronto Canada, Ellie Marsten’s mother was reading “Through The Looking Glass” to her daughter.

She appears in Sandman # 1, on page 3, in panel 1.

While she is only in one panel and is a pretty minor character in the series, John did an absolutely fantastic job with this portrait. I really like how he draws women and this is no exception. I like the expression and I like the way that her hair hangs down on her forehead. I also like that he captured the era perfectly with the type of clothing she is wearing. This is another great portrait from John.
