One lonely night…



One Big Top

Edit: I’m not sure why I have compression artifacts, but here’s a better resolution comp.

This is gorgeous

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends
We’re so glad you could attend
Come inside! Come inside!
There behind a glass is a real blade of grass
be careful as you pass.
Move along! Move along!

Come inside, the show’s about to start
guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured you’ll get your money’s worth
The greatest show in Heaven, Hell or Earth.
You’ve got to see the show, it’s a dynamo.
You’ve got to see the show, it’s rock and roll …

Soon the Gypsy Queen in a glaze of Vaseline
Will perform on guillotine
What a scene! What a scene!
Next upon the stand will you please extend a hand
to Alexander’s Ragtime Band
Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
See the show!

Performing on a stool we’ve a sight to make you drool
Seven virgins and a mule
Keep it cool. Keep it cool.
We would like it to be known the exhibits that were shown
were exclusively our own,
All our own. All our own.
Come and see the show! Come and see the show! Come and see the show!
See the show!

Damn I hate clowns. But I looooove elephants. :wink:

The Main Attraction

This is a resub from the exercise derby. I added a background starburst, changed the light cord the clown was hanging from from straight to curved, put rings in the other hand of the fat lady, and put a distressing over the entire image. Hope this enough! I think it’s a major improvement that completes what the first one was lacking.

Please vote for my flea circus!

I checked out some vintage Polish Circus posters and really liked one featuring a bear in a suit with a bicycle. Here’s my version. Hope you enjoy.

And there they were. The music was tempting. Maybe it would be worth the cost.

You know, i did it again and saved this out at 600 x 600 old habits I guess.

Here’s a higher res version

Please vote for my circus elephants!

Very Clever!!! - I LOVE IT! I’M IN FOR ONE!!! :smiley:

Wow! Those tents look magical.

Hahaha… cute design, made me laugh.

Finally, after years of the same tricks and stunts, the circus animals had their revenge. As a side note, they were apparently Latin circus animals and very well educated because as they performed their coup animalis they said only two words: lex talionis. This was their chant. This was their cry.

Lex talionis. Long live the circus animal revolution.
