Clowning Around

As I mentioned a while ago I was asked to draw a clown for a new illustrated book and the book is now in print. Circus De Niro is written by Michael Powell with artwork by Phil Elliott, with bonus illustrations of the circus performers at the back of the book by Paul Grist, Robert Wells, and me. (My illustration was coloured by Phil Elliott.)

Circus De Niro tells the story of Edgar and Elsa, two twins who escape the sinister grip of their father to discover a strange new world. Not a comic, but an illustrated story, it features some of Phil's best artwork to date, showing his mastery of black and white illustation. You may remember Phil Elliott's work from the days of Escape comic in the 1980s. He's been in the business a long time and has honed his craft. Here's an example of his work in the book:
