Wedding Musician # 1 (illustrated by John Carmine)

At the wedding of Orpheus and Eurydice, there is music and dancing and gaiety before tragedy strikes the newly married couple.

This Greek citizen is at the wedding reception and is playing music with a few other people, while the guests of the party dance.

He appears in The Sandman Special # 1, on page 7, in panel 5.

I really like this portrait from John. The watercolors really adds a pretty cool feel to the portrait. I like the sky and the blueness of the temple in the background. There’s also a visual texture that is created the varying shades of green on the bushes behind the musician. This is a very rich portrait and definitely one of my favorite portraits from John.
