the face of the circus - 100 drawings in 100 days

yes, it's that time of the year - the fair is in town!! or, as it's known here in australia, the "ekka", which is short for "exhibition". aussie's are well-known for their fascination with and ability to shorten almost any name (whether it's a person's name, eg. "sharon" is known as "shazza", the name of a meal-time, eg. "breakfast" is known here as "brekkie", or an event, such as the above-mentioned). so, i have been sent this photo from a friend, and drawn the clown-face down whose throat you are supposed to throw copious amounts of ping-pong balls.

i will be attending the fair next week, at which time i will be taking plenty of clowny pics as well as (hopefully) wierd and strange-looking things. this drawing is titled "the face of the circus", mainly because i didn't think a lot of people who read this would know what an "ekka" was...

also, i just added the "100 drawings in 100 days" to my facebook page for studio de Shan. please go check it out, and soon i will have all of my art added to the site.
