Ray's Circus

Ray's Circus

A self-initiated project inspired by muñecas de cartón- Mexican papier mâché easter dolls modelled on trapeze artists. The images submitted are development towards illustrations for a children's book. I want to communicate the loneliness of travelling in a circus troop at the turn of the 20th century, but also the glamour and nostalgia associated with it. Two images are drawn and one is of a ceramic figurine.
