The Poker Face

Some people just can’t keep a straight face. Others, well…

The Man With the Bag

Frank_Grau_Slapstix_ornamentGoodness, this day seems to come up so quickly. Well, we’ll keep the tree up through to the new year, and then it’s back to life as usual. I don’t know about you, but this is a nice Christmas. It’s not that there are lots of material gifts or any such thing, but the time spent with family and loved ones is great. I hope you’re all having a very Merry Christmas celebrating the birth of baby Jesus. As for the sketch, well, the clownin’ around never stops.

 

Christmas Clownin’

Yet another clown ornament…

Yee-Haw!

More clownin’ around…

Strummin’ Along

Here is yet another musical clown design intended as a bust figurine, which I had designed for Second Nature Design almost a decade ago. I must confess, I’ve always enjoyed drawing these goofy kinds of characters. Perhaps they reflect my own goofiness.

Clownin’ Around

I had designed a line of clown figurines -called “Slapstix”- while at Cast Art Industries, back in the 1990s. I had drawn a ton of clown designs; more so than we could ever produce. I literally filled a wall with drawings.

After Cast Art closed its doors, Second Nature Designs commissioned me do a similar clown line, however, these were only busts.

Here’s one design from that line (perhaps in the future, I’ll spend an entire week posting a load of these).
