Boris the Clown & Wiggles

This little guy’s name is Boris, and he’s the freshest Rot in my sketchbook.

I drew him in response to a fellow illustrator who saw my kid’s illustration portfolio and told me the pictures would probably scare the children (I guess I deserved that). To get in the right frame of mind, he told me, I should be thinking more along the lines of “clowns and birthday parties.”


I’ve always found clowns to be disturbing. And now I find myself trying to draw them.

And they’ve all been pretty much disturbing.
