'Nesting'



This project was so much fun to work on! As soon as I saw the shape of the punk, it reminded me of the nesting dolls that I grew up with. I was also moved by the love that is shared between families, friends and loved ones.

As I painted (and day-dreamed out my studio window) I thought about the feeling of simplicity and freedom that Summertime always brings me. The iridescent colors and whimsical patterns were inspired by the magical and carefree Summers of my childhood.

Masquerader by Dave Glass


revised sketch

Initial sketch and first coat of paint on circus punk halfway there...

Snooki

Thanks to Paul for the chance to contribute to Clowntastrophe. The work on this blog is phenomenal, and it will be awesome to be a part of something to which so many great artists have contributed. Man alive, seriously, all the work here has been amazing so far.


This is Snooki, from the MTV show Jersey Shore. That show is alright by me, but in a row of punks, I thought she'd be a fun one to throw a ball at and try to knock over.

I took this project as a chance to do something outside of what I might normally do, so it is sculpture-based. Those are fake nails as the eyes, a pig as a nose, and a Snickers wrapper as the mouth (they call her Snickers on the show, as a nickname to a nickname, I guess). For the full rundown on how it all came about, check my blog.

Binky the Circus Punk

For my Punk I decided to go kind of simple, I wasn't sure how it would take spray paint, since it was basically stuffed canvas. I sketched out the design on tracing paper (not a computer!), and then cut out some tape masks to spray paint. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's.

PS- I named mine after the clown from the "Garfield and Friends" cartoon.

El Payaso...Lo que te ríes?

Aquí está mi punk circo para el Clowntastrophe ... su nombre es El Payaso el luchador!

Shaman Punk


Here's what I came up with for this years Clowntastrophe. I figured when there were really circus punks at circuses people would want to knock down things they were afraid up like freaks and things they thought were evil. Originally I wanted this to sort of look like a Polynesian cannibal but in the end wound up looking like a magic man from India, so either way it works for me. I made him blind so he can easily see into the spirit world, and adorned him up with turkey feathers and other things lying around the house. painted with acrylic. See you at the show!

He's done!
And flying from San Francisco back to Philly post haste. ^_~

I, Pagliacci

it's been an honor and a blast to have gotten to participate on this awesome event; thanks Paul!

while i wanted my circus punk to be cartoonish and fun, i definitely wanted to show the correlation life has with laughter (the fire in his throat) and death (his balloon animal), and how they all work to make life even more of a blast

feel free to click on these jpegs for huger views. i wish i could attend the event this year, but i'm real glad to get to be a part of this with all of you. have fun!
