Faery # 3 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

This Faery is one of the many faeries that are in attendance for the first performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (written by William Shakespeare, as part of an agreement he has with Morpheus). The performance takes place on June 23, 1593 in Wilmington, England near The Long Man of Wilmington.

This Faery appears in Sandman # 19, on page 9, in panel 6.

Max did a great job with this portrait. It’s interesting that he took a more animalistic approach to this faery that he has with his previous faeries. It gives the faery a more dangerous feeling. He also drew an alternate version of the Faery on the backside of this portrait. I am going to include it here because it’s fun and it’s fascinating to see another interpretation of this character.
