Back in college, I created these sketches for a homework assignment. Ever since, they've been sitting in a box in my room, the ideas collecting dust. I was fixing some files on my computer recently when I found these old scans of the originals.
I like circuses and carnivals, so these characters were an exploration of those fancies.
For this sketch, I thought of a woman so obsessed with jewelry/beauty, that she ate it. It's one of those ideas where if someone does something repeatedly enough, they'll become like that object/idea.
The drawings I've been doing recently are inspired by these sketches. I think it's time to revive these characters. Maybe in color pencil, maybe pen?
Are there any characters that catch your attention? The Juggler is my favorite sketch!
