Concubine # 8 (illustrated by Joelle Jones)

In the time of Haroun al Raschid, Baghdad was a place of wonders.

Haroun al Raschid gave a common beggar the opportunity to live the life of a Caliphate for a day. The beggar boy was surrounded by jewels and concubines and spent the entire day in luxury.

This woman is one of the concubines that helped give the beggar a day of dreams.

She appears in Sandman # 50 on page 7 in panel 2.

Joelle did an awesome job with this portrait. I love the vibrant colors used in this portrait. The colors definitely give the impression of splendor. I really like the use of gold for the pillows. That is a nice touch. I really like how this woman is leaning back on the pillows with the inviting expression on her face.

Here is Concubine # 8, from Ramadan…
