Digital art for the 3 Muses challenge, by ntorsen.
I love circus art - and clowns. So you may see more clowns around here than some people are comfortable with.
I'd like to get my hands on the guy that invented 'evil clowns'. As a semi-professional clown, I know that part of our training is focused heavily on being non-threatening. For example: A real clown never throws candy or toys in a parade. He or she walks to the sidelines and presents them to a child. Anything to avoid hurting anyone or presenting a frightening image. It's fine to grab the arm of an adult and do a "swing your partner" dance, but you don't do that to a child. It might scare them.
So, here's to the happy, loving, laugh-provoking clown. Long may he wave!!
I sincerely hope I did surreal without scary.
