374. Evil Clowns deserve more attention

August 22, 2009


Ink fineliner on paper, July 2009.

There’s something hideous about clowns. Shudder! I don’t know what it is, nor do I know the origin of my fascination with evil clowns. There are Christmas-inspired elements here, too – namely the reindeer and the tinsel on the mast.

In terms of influences in my own life –

There’s an episode of the Simpsons where Rod and Todd Flanders poke a drunk and passed-out Krusty the Klown. They ask the question, ‘Do you think he’s evil?’

Then there’s all the clowns in heavy metal culture. Maybe its some weird horror movie thing. I don’t watch horror movies so I wouldn’t know…

I’m not sure if any of this makes much sense, but there it is. Enjoy!

300. Journey to Bethlehem

November 14, 2008


Watercolour pastel on paper, 2007. 2008 re-edit.

For the 300th image (wow, 300!) I thought I’d share a re-edited version of one of my more popular paintings. For some reason, this image has sparked a lot of positive feedback. It’s an imagined depiction of the journey of Mary and Jospeh to Bethlehem, as found in the Bible book of Luke. I’m starting to feel Christmassy already, so here’s my early entry into the Christmas spirit!
