Death at the Circus (43)

NOVEMBER 10, 2015
A new drawing from my Death at the Circus series. I'm not sure why I've adopted this arched-back cat image into my latest drawings, except to say it give me pleasure to do so. I guess that statement is true for every drawing I've done in this series; the great satisfaction in drawing imagery that enthralls me. The recurring images in Death at the Circus may be repetitive for those following this endeavor, but not for me. I don't think I've ever felt as spiritually connected to anything I've done in all my years as an artist as I am to these pictures. A bonus: this one features a small homage to my favorite beverage, beer. Cheers!
