I happened to have watched a television program about circus life and side shows 2 days ago. I loved diving into this kit by Crowabout StudioB. The design reminds me of the show because it focused on why people with oddities would join the circus. I was particularly reminded of the woman with a beard - she did not want to be known as the bearded lady. Somehow she morphed into an altered, baby-faced elephant. Phallic symbols made an appearance as well.

All elements and paper from Haunted Circus by Crowabout StudioB.

Shadows, bevels, recoloring added.


MUST Check Out Suzi Blu

She is the coolest person I have not me but have email met and taken online art classes with sort of. In any case, I am in love with her apparent way of life, not to mention her incredible talents, including drawing and painting, and teaching, making videos and even amusing yet educational blog posts. I seriously would consider the "L" word for her. Anyway She is at Suzi Blu.  The photo is very similar to her drawing and painting style, could be one of hers under a different name.

p.s. BTW, no, I am not so naive as to believe Suzi Blu is her real name, cool as it might be.

LEAD - Disability Advocacy

Please take a moment to read the above noted page. I was motivated by many events but after seeing the woman who has made such a difference for Rwandan women, I've been inspired to begin an advocacy group that I've considered for quite a while. I hope you will join me in whatever capacity you can. (No money is involved!) Leave a comment and you can become part of the movement.
