"I, Georgie, am Mr. Bob Gray, also known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Pennywise, meet George Denbrough. George, meet Pennywise. And now we know each other. I'm not a stranger to you, and you're not a stranger to me. Kee-rect?"

Pennywise The Dancing Clown
Specifications: 20" x 10" mixed media paper cutting and Prismacolor pencil on Mi-Teints paper Personal collection.
I'd been planning to do a paper sculpture of Pennywise from the movie 'IT' for a while, didn't think I'd be going in this direction. This started out as an experiment, combining paper cutting with a traditional portrait done with graphite or colored pencil. While creating the templates for the paper cut portion of this image, I got to playing around with the color scheme. One was dark and sepia toned, the other was...not so dark. Loved the idea of pairing a horror icon with bright deco colors, so I went with a playful approach.
Since this is an experiment, c & c's are warmly welcomed.
Do they float?
No, Georgie. They party like it's Mardi Gras! And when you're down here with me, you'll party too!!!
Thanks for looking.
P.S. Here's a close up of the colored pencil portion of this piece:
