I got quite carried away with the "Circus" theme at Conny's challenge "Mix it Monthly" and made several pages of my tiny black pen drawings, again with no fixed idea, just letting the pen do most of the work.
I've got a crazy pen, how much fun is the little bird on the trapeze?
And although you may not think it (yet), the one bottom right is obviously an elephant drummer, haha!
The magic pen I'm using is the Pigma Micron 01, and my search for the perfect pen may have ended.
I drew a slightly better sketch
and painted it with watercolours.
The striped background was painted with oil pastels and textile dyes.
It's Effy, the Elephant Drummer, from the Flying Circus!
She loves to play the drum.
As I said in my previous post, this is no ordinary circus, this is "The Flying Circus", run and organised by the birds and creatures themselves.

In my previous post, you saw Arfer, the Circus Hypnotist
and I was highly delighted when I discovered a new card design from a crop of this picture.
In another colourway.
I can never have too many cards.
I hope you enjoyed your second visit to The Flying Circus, there may be more another time!
