Circus Freaks

W.H. Johnson, or "Zip the What Is It?", lived a long life as a P.T. Barnum sideshow freak. "The American people love to be humbugged..."
He wore a furry suit and spent a lot of time playing the violin in a cage, it's apparent that times have changed. The conception of this piece has been moving quickly, I stretched a piece of thick canvas over a 12"x14" board. It's since been covered in oil, spray paint, collage and transfer (Whatever it takes).

More to come soon.
