Roman Citizen # 129 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

In Fables And Reflections, Augustus Caesar and the dwarf Lycius spend the day sitting on the temple steps near the marketplace dressed as beggars.

The marketplace is crowded and many people pass them without regard, because who would expect this lowly beggar to be the Emperor of Rome.

This citizen is spending the afternoon in the Roman market near the steps where Caesar and Lycius are sitting.

She appears in Sandman # 30, page 13, and is panel 4.

I love this portrait from Kai. This portrait is a contrast to what many people have drawn when they think of Roman Citizens. I really like the coloring of her skin and the folds of the clothes she is wearing. The details and line work are perfect. I also really enjoy her hair. I think that Kai’s approach to this character is completely unique and stands apart from a lot of the Roman Citizens from this issue.
