The Circus Came To Town
Well, transitioning to the new website is a bear. A bear that mauled me and left me for dead(line). I do believe he rode off on a unicycle? As always, bad news (regardless of bear participation) is actually good news, though not no news. But more on that a little later. In the meantime, I need to post, so I’m posting here and there.
The above illustration was a commission I completed for Kendel Mineo as a gift to her fiance, now husband, for their wedding. Kendel is extremely nice, patient, enthusiastic, and all other descriptors of unconditional positive regard that might pop into your head. I really appreciate her and the unique opportunity she gave me. I’ve posted prelims and studies of this project quit awhile ago, but don’t believe I every revealed why I might scratch out feline trapeze artists or high-wire costumes. (I too lazy to re-read my own posts) I was swore to secrecy.
Well, if you must know, the clarity of reason shines mostly through if you’ll gander a bit at the picture. What might not be apparent is why a circus poster for a wedding? and who are all those darned yet cuddly animals? The answer is simple, though part of me laments telling you. Not that I don’t like you. No, no. I just enjoy the mystery. Anyway…it was a circus themed wedding on the Santa Monica pier. And Kendel and Peter, being animal lovers, wanted the whole family included. Sweet, huh? How often in your professional, even artistically professional, life do you get to do that?!
Not a lot, but I hope a lot more.
