Man At The Renaissance Fair # 26 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

When Hob goes to a Renaissance Fair with his girlfriend for the day he is thrust back into a romanticized version of the era, in which he first made his deal with Death and Dream for immortality.

Hob finds the Renaissance Fair to be a bit frustrating and comments that it is not even remotely accurate to how things were. He tells Dave, a young man who dresses as a jester for the fair, that there’s no lice or nits or rotting face cancers at the fair, and there’s no feces (neither animal or people).

This man is talking to another man and woman at the fair as Hob explains how things really were.

This man appears in Sandman # 73 on page 11, in panel 3.

Kai took an interesting approach to this character. He presented the character with his back to us, similar to how he is standing in the published comic. I really like Kai’s detailed line work in the green shawl over his shoulders. The layers are really well executed. I also like the colors that he used. They are very vibrant.
