Fireman # 3 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In Brief Lives, Dream and Delirium travel through the mortal world in search of their missing brother, Destruction.

Along the way they stop at a hotel to rest and during their stay the hotel catches on fire. This Fireman is one of the men who worked to extinguish the blaze.

He appears in Sandman # 44, on page 23 in panel 1. He standing in the doorway, about to enter the burning room.

I love this portrait from Anna. I really like the perspective of this portrait. The contrast between the yellow orange of the background fire and the deep blues of his outfit is pretty spectacular. This portrait really has a lot of life to it. When looking at this I get a very real and emotional response with this character. I’m not quite sure how Anna managed to do this with her portrait, but it’s very effective.
