Here's the one that made it to the cover of the Weekend Post! And here are the other sketches. It's always a rush for me to see my work published this size (8.9 x 16.7"). It's for the National Post's Spring Books special -- one of the books is "The Ordinary Acrobat" by Duncan Wall.
Circus posters were my main source of inspiration. I love their bright colours and the fantastic feats they display! Right up my alley.
I've gone my whole life without drawing a single horse. And now this is the second illustration in a row that includes a horse.
