Yeah, This is slightly graphic but the warning truly should have read "CLOWN warning" but I didn't want to tip anyone off that they were about to witness a full frontal clown picture. You know the type that keeps you awake for days, staring into your closet, waiting for the big bulbous red nose to peek around the corner...Okay, wait, I'm creeping myself out now, lol.

Fair warning though...

This is a scary clown...

Hit the back button now...

I apologize, I couldn't help myself...

Last chance...


This (these) card(s) were done using acrylics and prismacolor pencils. I couldn't get the darn clowns out of my head. I had so much fun making him though. It was like exercising some demons. Couple of friends at work think I'm a tad "touched" now though.
I did include one shot of the back sides of the cards though. I thought they fit well with the front and should be included.

I hope no one has terrible nightmares though... Grin.

Ooooh that is evil!  I think I'm regressing to how I felt after watching IT when I was 13.....

I love how the string (sorry I can't think of a better word for it) matches the card so well.  Which came first?

Funny thing about the 'string'. I knew that once I had the tag on the backside with my quote that I wanted some fancy fibres to dress it up a bit, so I went into my stash of cool yarn which consists of 4 balls of yarn. One white, two off-white and the fourth one in the colors you see there. I couldn't believe at how well they matched the colors on the cards. Fate...it was meant to be.

Long story short, the cards came first, haha.

I love it.  I was just coming to scan the Halloween threads again, saw this on the frontpage, and flipped.  Awesome.

Thanks for the great comment Trentsketch and glad you stopped by.

Panthermoon, I'm very glad I could elicite a chuckle, hehe...

Kaleesi, yes I did draw that. I should probably scan in my original quick sketch from my work pad to show how it evolved. It was kinda cool. I didn't stray from the original too much.

Original Youth, thanks for the comments. Eerie is exactly what I was going for.
