Clowns Serving Christ Ministries

Westerville, Ohio

This illustrated logo was developed for a Christian clowning organization, for use on their web site, as well as for posters and banners at their performances. The group loaned me their photo archives so that I could accurately depict costumes, colors, and face make up.

This series of 20 small clown faces was used for the cover of the concluding worship service at ClownTown 2008, a national annual gathering of clowns held in Newark, Ohio. It was the 20th anniversary of ClownTown, so the twenty faces represnted the "twenty years of laughter."

The illustrations were hand drawn in pen and ink, and colored in Adobe Photoshop.
