Real Fake sideshow Freaks book

The reason for there not being any new posts lately is because the last weeks of uni has pretty much taken up all of my time. But now everything has been handed in, and I can start to focus on other stuff again 🙂 I am still going to be in London for a few weeks for the degree show. But other than that, I am done! FREEDOM!

As you might already know, my final major project was about fake sideshow freaks. As well as making banners and a display, I also made a book. And here it is.

I will most likely not upload any pictures of the display until the degree show.

Feejee Mermaid poster test

My final major project is about fake sideshow freaks, and how they usually never looked anything like the posters that was made of them. Don’t know why, but I have always found that sort of stuff interesting :p One of the freaks I have used is the Feejee mermaid. On the posters it would be shown as a beautiful mermaid, but in real life, it was usually just half a fish and half a monkey stuck together.

This was my first try at the feejee mermaid poster. I am happy with the feejee mermaid’s pose and the composition of the drawing, but I think I will use a different style of drawing for the final version.
