By day I am an upstanding mosaic designer for New Ravenna Mosaics on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. By night I am a superdork drawing whatever weird things pop into my head. By morning I'm exhausted.

I had to come back to say that I think this deserved a much better finish. Now the music is stuck in My head again. Good thing I like calliope music.

Love the energy and boldness in this, Cean, and I can totally smell the popcorn! Too bad we can't actually hear your soundtrack. ;P
Cean, your marvelous design gives the viewer tantalising gliimpses into the glamorous world of the circus! The repeat is a magical one!
I love how these super stripes are drawn back in a great repeat to reveal a collection of classic circus cameos, Cean. The clown car is very cool!
Fabulous Cean, just love everything about this! Fantastic tent opening/stripe background effect and loving the quirky and vaguely creepy illustrations of course! especially the bearded ladies....always a favourite of mine....not really sure why, but there you go!!!
Fun!! The circus tent stripe shape is so dynamic! Brilliant idea!
awesome retro feel cean! so fun and quirky, the epitome of the circus.
Looking at this made the circus music start in my head. Excellent job.
ha ha - you've got the colors spot on! And it's got all the lure and creepiness and showiness of the circus too in proper proportions. I love how you've used the stripy tent to organize the design - very nice!
Love the use of the limited circus colors. Your illustrations are always so amazing. Digging the bearded ladies.
Thanks Sharon, Jillian, Beesocks, and Drea! I'm dabbling with more optical effects in PS (hence my stripe experiment) and trying to get the nerve and brain up to learn AI, but it will be eons until I get it, I'm sure.
I love the circus tent opening/stripe effect - perfect! And awesome illustrations as usual!!!
the bearded ladies are awesome!
Oooo I love the flying ladies! The bearded ones too haha! The bold limited colors and layout are great!
oh that car is genius.... such a clever repeat ~ and great use of traditional circus stripes! I can't wait to see it printed up! :D xxx
Thanks Samarra, Carina and Brittney! I'm glad you like the hairy twins, they're my favorites, too!
For some reason twin bearded ladies just makes me happy inside.
this is awesome Cean!! yep, great repeat too :)
Awww, very nicely done. And great idea for the repeat! Sweet job, lady!
