Step right up!
OK, so I know so many people think clowns are super CREEPY & I have to admit I kind of do too. But I thought that this theme would be a good challange. I wanted to create a sweet yet not too baby clown print that wouldn’t feel scary.
What got me thinking about clowns was this art my dad made in 1975 & sold in kids toy stores/ boutiques. I remember when I was young & someone had a baby he would cut the child’s name out of the alphabet, mat it & place it in a brightly colored frame. Yes, my Daddy is an artist, it runs in the family. He had his own graphic design studio for 30 years. Our styles are really different his work is very polished & this clown piece he made always cracked me up because it’s so unlike the usual work he did.
So honestly what do you think are clowns creepy? Have I changed any minds???
