Clowns


Painted with dyes in 1981. The white paint touches have hardened with time.

Since the times of the Disney classics I haven't seen anything as enchanting as this!
You are a genius!

Thanks, Glad, but you may exagerate a bit. If you check the October archives you may find more of these in the posting "The World Is Round"

A waste of time, as usual...
No...It was a warm up for a children's book.

A warm up?
I suspect anyone who reads that is going to feel a little inadequate...most definately including me.

I love the clowns! They look so concentrated in what they're doing.

I need to clarify what I meant for "warming up".
I never know the style in which I am going to draw a project, so, I usually make a complete illustration to see if I will like to spend a year or so drawing that way. In the case of this book, I must have done 6 or 8 complete pieces of artwork, then I started to work on the originals for publication.This was done in my free time because by then we were opening our animation studio, Klactoveesedstene Animations.

How do you choose a style for a project? Have you ever made a style which you didn't like at all but the client wanted you to do?

Yes, animating certain commercials I didn't want to do but they were "work"

I feel slightly less inadequate now, thank you (but not much less).
