harlequin, buffoon. by bohemianpoets harlequin, buffoon. by bohemianpoets
this character is based on a dream i had.

i dreamt a clown, this clown, in nothing but dull colors
rushed up my stairs and melted back down,.

back and forth, back and forth, eventually he stopped and cried at the end of my stairs, he had no eyes, one wouldnt have known he was crying but he had his hands buried in his face and he made such heartbreaking noise,

i turned but to walk away so he wouldnt see me
(im a little afraid of clowns let alone strangers in my home)
he turned to look at me, he stood i was afraid so i used my freaking legs and ran

hid my face under my blanket, i heard my door cleeping open,
after ten minutes i peeked.
there he stood at the end of my bed facing the side pointing at something, he was seemed so fixated on i wont mention what yet.. just that his face faded in an out and it was almost as if he drew himself an eye,

as if he was drawing himself an identity.
it was actually quite interesting to watch

only but a dream nonetheless. :aww:

Whoa, that's a very interesting dream you had there. I love the eyelashes on the clown they're the only whimsical part of the clown actually. Thats why they stand out.

its funny because i feel as if i captured the exact mood of the clown, texture, feel only thing missing is that tingling clown music, it scares me but i find myself more and more drawn to it

That dream both disturbs me and enlightens me.
I can get a feel by looking at the clown figure.
So sad, so eerie.

Beautiful work, even your dreams are art.

i was deadly afraid of this drawing so its quite ironic now that i am able to look at it, im rather drawn to it, i think it is because of the story behind it

That's a rather interesting dream, I'm afraid of clowns so I would have been freaked out if it was mine O_o I'm always mildly disturbed and intrigued by your drawings in this style.

lol, I do have a myspace, I haven't updated it in years though, I don't like it cause i can't make it work the way I want...
I don't like sharing my dreams... I find it odd for me to do
