All the World loves a clown right? No....not true, in fact some people are down right terrified of the foolish fellows who wear the wig's and floppy shoes. A recent discussion of this with a friend has inspired me to do a series of scary clowns, which I hope you will enjoy.

Summer ends in a few short weeks, and I have a mountain of projects to get cooking on, but every artist needs a little warm up now and then so don't be surprised if, in between the serious illustration to come, the occasional scary clown pop's up quite unexpectedly!

Some of you have written to express concern about my lack of output the last two months, however what many of you don't realize is that I typically seldom draw at all during the months of July and August. Let's just call it a seasonal hangup of mine and leave it at that. In fact.... I have done more drawing this Summer than any summer I can ever remember! So never fear friends....Summer is over! Mitch is back at the drawing board once again!

I would like to dedicate tonight's post to my Mom who always encouraged my artistic nature, Mom...I got you a belated clown for your birthday, ( sorry he is a scary looking fellow ) ha-ha

Scary is right! Clowns have always creeped me out. Nice work, Mitch.

Huh how about that I didn't know adults still got creeped out by clowns. I had a clown doll I had to turn around at night because I didn't like him staring at me.
I swear his eyes moved back and forth.
I'll have to try that. Put a clowns face on just anybody.
It would be fun to put a clown face on the serious models faces then they wouldn't be super models. anymore.
