I've been looking forward to this...
I'm about to start illustrating a new comic about the 'Show Devils', 'The Strangest Show on Earth' or 'The Most Dangerous Show on Earth' (take your pick.)
Show Devils are the real life side show performers The Enigma and Serana Rose. As they put it:
"Dubbed "WORLDS MOST DANGEROUS SHOW" and America's A-list "SUBCULTURE SWEETHEARTS". The Tattooed Royalty known as SHOWDEVILS WILL BRING YOU A MENAGERIE COLLECTION OF HUMAN MARVELS, STRANGE STUNTS, & NOVEL TALENTS! This Globally Renowned Grand Poobah of Stunt Shows unrolls the 1920's glory of vaudeville with an intense mix of traditional routines, modern performances, and strange music, like the beautiful Serana Rose the Electric Girl, Neon Swallowing, Glass Eating, the Tattooed Puzzle Man from the X-files "The Enigma", the Hot and Sexy Fire Eater, Knife Throwing, Running Chainsaws while Blindfolded, Spikes Hammered into the Head, beatings with blades, Pin-filled Puncushions, and much, much, more. All done to a music that'll make you quiver!"
"The Founding/Creating and Musical Enterprises of SHOWDEVILS involved traveling the seven seas to bring you the odd and unusual. If it doesn't exist anymore, we'll reproduce it! SHOWDEVILS will put you in a dream-like surrealist world perceived as timeless. Always offering a vast cornucopia of things to see, savor and remember. We are taking the dreams from P. T. Barnum and our artistic vision is heavily influenced by a smorgasbord of artists & inspirations..."
So here are some warm up pieces that I did:
