Something wicked this way comes

I guess it is about time that I upload my contribution to The Greatest Show on Earth! So here it is. As you might already know, the theme for the show was circuses, freak-shows and fairs from literature. The book I chose was Something wicked this way comes by Ray Bradbury. I Loved the book, and found it really difficult on deciding on what part to illustrate.

After a lot of thought, I ended up with drawing a giant version of the carrousel that would add or take a year of your age for every round you rode with it. Finding it hard to explain this, but I’m pretty sure this makes a lot more sense to those who have read the book… So going with that, I ended up drawing a few of the evil circus people riding it, getting older and younger.

The most fun part with this drawing was drawing the characters. Here are a few of my favorites.

The evil clown with the worlds biggest camel toe.

The bearded lady flashing some hairy legs and the illustrated man-baby.

And here is some of the details on the actual carrousel.

The Greatest Show on Earth was a success and I had a lot of fun! Here is a video from the event by Adam Clague, one of my fellow members from the Drawn Chorus Collective.

Greatest Show on Earth!

The Greatest Show on Earth is almost done, and I have finally gotten around to add a few pictures of it. A few meaning two pictures that is :p I tend to forget taking pictures when I’m having fun. But I’m sure I’m not the only one who has this problem.

This is the window to the gallery.

And this is me standing in front of my work. We were all supposed to wear circus themed costumes.

If you had planned to catch the show and still haven’t, today is your last chance. It will be open from 9am to 4.30pm. You can find the address and more details right here:
