Illustration Friday - Wired

I hope those wires are wired down properly......

I was about 6 yrs old the first time I visited a real circus....I can still remember it vividly in my sister and I were so excited and were waiting anxiously for the day to arrive!
I loved the clowns and the huge elephant the most....


  1. Wonderful!!! But where's the net??? :-) I love the depth of the colors and the crowd in the background. Great, as always!

  2. She's a professional Melissa - no need for a net!! haha...

  3. Great illustration Anastasia -really well done.

  4. I went to a circus like that in Mexico, once. The odd thing was that the circus tent was at the top of this hill, which made the stunts seem that much more dangerous! As Always I love your illustrations, and envy your mastery of the pen/pencil.

  5. What a cool sketch!!

    This is a very cool drawing. You got the perspective right, and you get the feel everyone in the crowd is both amazed and nervous. :-) Really nice line work and use of colored pencils.

  7. Anastasia!!! I love this ,everything about it the subject the colors,the spirit of the piece,LOVE it!!

    What a sweet memory, I am a little scared of clowns now (featured in too many horror movies)!

    Haven't been to the circus in a while but I road one of the elephants just about six years ago. The elephant really didn't care about my age...what a guy.

    Love your drawing.
    Take care,

    My feast is up.

  10. I adore the circus, I still find it exciting as an adult. The ringmaster, and all the acrobatics. Love your drawing, she's a real dare devil without the net!

  11. the tightrope walker is so sweet... i really like her mask :)
