Faery # 124 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

On June 23rd, 1593, a group of Faeries crossed over to Wilmington, England with Titania and Auberon to see the first performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream written by William Shakespeare at the request of Morpheus.

This Faery appears in Sandman # 19, on page 15, in panel 1.

While Titania and Auberon speak to the actors during an intermission, this Faery is standing beside the queen of faeries. I always thought, based on her facial expression, she may be a servant to Titania.

I really like this portrait from Anna. I like the purplish blue colors she used for the faery’s hair and as always there is a smile on her face, although a faint one. This just feels like a really sweet and innocent faery and not as mischievous or frightening as many of the faeries in this issue.
