Clowning Around

I'm fighting a cold, so I dusted off a weird picture from days of  'ole.  First posted in 7/10, this clown comes with apologies and a handful of stellar comments.



It reads, "BE A CLOWN! BE A CLOWN! ALL THE WORLD LOVES--" and the clown states, "I'M VERY COLORFUL!" Yep, I was special and a mere 11.5 years old when I created him/it.

Gorilla Bananas said That's a great drawing, although there is a slight resemblance to Hitler which we'll ignore. I especially like his pantaloons. Are those his underpants round his ankles?

Powdered Toast Man said I think another clown threw up a box of crayons on this clown.

Tgoette said Lovely drawing, Robyn. So tell me, did you take a lot of LSD when you were 11?

Kal said I like the goofy fingers and colorful costume. This is one clown I would not beat to death upon meeting him I think.
 
Have a great Thursday.
 
Keep a smile and a stash of chocolate.

  1. Actually I never cared for clowns but this one made me laugh. Maybe it is all the colors or maybe because everything about him has kind of ballooned.

  4. I'm sorry I didn't praise the costume, the patterns are wonderfully creative. You wrote "ALL THE WORLD LOVES...", but many people have told me they're scared of clowns. I suppose you must have been blissfully unaware of this at the age of 11.5.

  5. Hope you feel better soon!

    The drawing is cute, although I must say I see the Hitler resemblance too. *tilts head at picture, squinting*

  9. Sorry about the cold Robyn, I think I'm fighting one too so I can relate and hope that you get well soon. I actually don't mind the clown, for your age I think it's great haha, although I can see an LSD influenced vibe with the writing on it haha.

  10. Hope you feel better soon. Looking at such a ummm killer clown can make any one frown.

  12. Sorry to hear you're fighting a cold. Who's winning this fight?

    Also, I'm with David. I'm usually terrified of clowns, but I daresay I actually find Clown Hitler to be amusing and comical.

  13. A fun clown. Interesting that his feet look ready to walk him out of the picture while the rest of his body faces us head on.

  14. Best comments ever! And since it was pointed out, I see the Hitler resemblance too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL. Oh no, Gorilla Bananas started something shockingly sinister. Just like him.

    BnB, I thought I was winning, but the cold is taking this round by sinus storm.

    Thanks, all.
    Be well.

    Keep smiling. It's contagious. You have me doing it again.

  16. I think it's funny that most everyone has a strong reaction to clowns (positive or negative). In any case, your clown is very colorful. With fingers like that I bet he spends half his time doing "jazz hands."

  17. If more clowns looked like this, I would spend a lot less time hating them.

  18. I think some movies depicted villians in clowns costume, which is why we have strong feelings for them!

  19. Well, clowns are not my favorite, but you make that one look semi-safe. Nice drawing. :)

  20. I hope you feel better! And I like the attention to the little design details :)

  21. Hope your feeling better. Take care of yourself.

    Love the little clown..very cute.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh I think he's adorable. My daughter has a clown phobia, so it made me laugh too. Hope you feel better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOL... Send in the clowns.... Hope you are feeling better.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think he's colorful and great-looking. I love him. And he bears no resemblance to Hitler at all. Have a wonderful weekend and feel better soon! :-)

  25. I've got a cold too! lol

    Great colours though and very structured. Ah the talent was there from the beginning.... hope you're feeling better soon.

  26. Hey Robyn,

    Firstly, sorry for the delay in one of my eagerly anticipated comments. I'm still looking for a clown or a clowning machine. Um, I'm still looking for a clone or a cloning machine.

    And I shall giggle like a crazed lunatic over those responses to your photo. Of course, I've got a head start on the crazed lunatic aspect.

    Your artistic prowess was obvious from an early age. The clown's clothes look rather like a bunch of weird playing cards. Is that a Joker in the deck?

    Oh, I have a stash of real chocolate. Yes, one of the finer points of living in Britain.

    And it's Saturday evening. Which means, I wish you a most positive rest of your weekend. Along with your ever growing legion of adoring fans, of course! :)

    Gary :) x

  27. Thank you, friends.

    I'm feeling better.

    I hope you have a cheery weekend.

    Gary, kindly send the cloning machine and British chocolate over - in the reverse order. Thanks.

  29. LOL! Yes, that is going back awhile! So glad we are both still around to clown around some more! Hope you are feeling better, Robyn!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've always hated clowns, but I do LOVE TO CLOWN AROUND!

    Having children in my life these days allows me that sweet opportunity.

    Glad to see all is well with you...

    xoxo

  31. Haha! Love the drawing...I agree with the pantaloons and underwear issue. LMAO. Thanks for the great laugh! You were such a young Picaso.
