This was my first attempt at working with black paper and layering colors on top of it. Basically I wanted to convey to the viewers two different sides that are seen in a circus. On the left we have the more magical and whimsical side of circus life, full of eye-catching illusions and trickery. On the right we have its counterpart, which is a very disheveled looking clown with a cigarette and booze to give the depressing look more emphasis. The tent is ripped in many places and you can obviously see the filthiness of the right side contrast with the clean-cut and colorful left side.
