The Greatest Show on Earth

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.

Seeing how I’m really focused on my piece for the upcoming show ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’, I find it really hard to draw anything that is not circus related…

At least its not a clown this time 🙂
