Creepy Clowns with Bodies

Please meet Samuel.

I've had a number of requests for full bodied clowns which I thought might be fun, so Samuel and Fredrick have come into being.

Clowns are funny things, it seems people either love them or hate them. I took a clown class in 4H when I was a youngster and it was actually fun. I think my clown name was Farmer Bill if I recall correctly. I really wasn't very good at being a clown, though I did like the make-up and costume the trying to make people laugh part did not come easy to me, I was of course a cranky teenager at the time, so my clown days were over.

I love your clowns, and yes the makeup is the best part, I use to ride a unicycle in the Sailor Circus, as a clown, too funny that you were a clown too

Love your clown story!! I love your clowns as well. There are certain types of clowns that I hate. You know, the traditional kind that Red Skelton painted. I'm not a fan of those types of clowns. I like creepy subdued clowns, I guess. I especially love that you used black and white stripes on yours. Thanks so much for sharing.

Also, I'm having a little give-away on my blog for 5 of my art prints. All of them are rabbity and/or Eastery. All you have to do is leave a comment.
