I am really interested in the idea of a Circus, as I think it can be any thing you want it to be. I have started collecting imagery and have created a hand made book of imagery and circus themed characters. After creating rough collages of imagery I began creating character, so far I have created the 'Fire King' and the 'Bird Juggler' who juggles her pet birds!.
Below are some images from my sketch book.
Below are some of the characters I have started to make.
