It's that time of the year again! The time to announce Montserrat's College of Art's Annual Illustration Theme Show... CIRCUS! I had a really fun time painting this year's poster. I hadn't done this since 2006 or 2007, so it was a true pleasure. Delving into my many Circus themed books, I started to sketch an idea that subtly showed a playful face. Complete with unicorns of course.
I have not been to MANY circuses, but my all time favorite was in the mid-80s. My mother and father took me to Worcester on chilly night to see a Russian circus. I had no idea that this was an equestrian horse circus, and I nearly lost my eight year old mind. I would love to see it again.
