The Horrible Cycle

1) Clown is happy, despite the fact that everyone hates him.

2) Clown tries to spread happiness, but fails and spreads fear and misery instead.

3) Clown is sad because everyone hates him.

4) Clown gets over it...repeat cycle!

Sometimes...we never learn, and we all suffer from it.

A watercolor painting with micron pens, salt, alcohol, paint pens, and highlighters, using color for emotion while telling a story. :)

Amazing artwork with a deeper meaning. Love the contrast between naive and happy (bright and colorful), fear (classic-horro grey) and sadness (darker, gloomy, 'washed-out' colors)

Yes, I am not deadXD

WOW! That's a huge complimet! XD
I think it helps that this particular clown is in despair, at least in the last panel. ;)

It's fantastic. And its good to see a clown cry. They cause so much emotional pain in children that it is only fair.

Thanks!
I agree, seeing a sad clown makes me happy. :)
I don't remember beeing scared of clowns as a kid, but I never really liked them...
Now, I think they are bizarre, especially the street performers who wear facial paint in places all over Europe...they are freaky.

Maybe it's because I've been uber emotional here lately, but that last panel makes me wanna cry. DX

Regardless, this is very well done. o.O I love the emotions you can put into your art, and all the stark contrasts in this particular piece.

But yes, I try to convey emotions with gusto! Thank you kindly, miss!

Clown is dead... because he tried to spread happiness to me... I am happy because clown is dead... clown succeeded
Kahmira's avatar
