the clown

Serious events viewed with the humourous eye of the clown personality can appeal to more people than just the clown. One goal of clowns is that they want to share what they think is funny. In this series, there are several elements that run through each piece; bold vibrant color, embedded pieces, and supporting text. The color of each piece not only mimics the personality of a clown but it also supports the message. The embedded elements as well as their scale draw the focus to the appropriate part of the piece that supports the joke and mirrors the boldness that clowns radiate. Supporting text on each of the pieces reinforces the overall message. Viewers that possess this personality can relate to the strong simplicity of the layouts.

Clown Death

Even though death is a solemn occasion, the clown can always find the humor in it. The giant number 6 is embedded in the paper with the word "under" stenciled next to it. All over the paper in different places are groups of six feet stamped on the page. From a distance they resemble fallen leaves but when you look closer the feet are clearly visible which completes the visual pun. On the side of the 6 are different ways to describe dying, in a humorous way.
