Leonard the Clown

I just ran across a couple drafts for blog posts this morning, and realized they’ve been sitting around for over a year waiting to be posted. They each included a sketch of a clown without any other explanation. The first sketch hasn’t gone anywhere. I wasn’t very satisfied with it for some reason. I had planned on making a painting out of it, but it never materialized.

Once I wasn’t satisfied with the first sketch, I tried another clown, and this one I ended up completing as a full-blown drawing, and he’s hanging in an exhibit as we speak.
Here’s the finished drawing.
And here’s the exhibit.
