The Black Guard # 9 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

I would like to welcome Kai Martin to the Sandman Portraits project!

I met Kai about a year ago at a local convention and loved his art. I commissioned a few drawings from him, which turned out to be the highlights of my convention. I immediately thought he would be a perfect artist for the Sandman portraits and I am happy to announce that he will be working on some portraits for us.

First up is a member of the Cuckoo’s elite army, The Black Guard.

The Black Guard were sent out in search of Barbie and her friends and bring them to the palace of The Cuckoo. At one point the Black Guard came close to finding them, but Barbie, Primando, Luz and Wilkinson hid under a snow drift and were able to avoid detection.

Eventually the Black Guard captured Barbie who was then delivered to the Cuckoo.

The Black Guard appears in several parts of the A Game of You Storyline.

Kai did a fabulous job with this portrait. I love the details that he put into this portrait and the darkness of the shadows surrounding this ominous character. This is a perfect portrait of this dark and mysterious character.
