i didn't know about arnold circus until last night. i ran an old taped program on london streets, and there it popped up, in all its round square gorgeousness. tucked away in the east shoreditch area, it is a magical neighbourhood, where sustainability becomes tangible, in its small townish, old time feel, filled in by a contemporary mob. when next in london ...

  6. Gorgeous!!!

    I never knew woolfie was so skilled!
    That nose stand must be a world first and juggling on a wheel most impressive. Colours are divines and dabbly texture just right.
    I think I would like to live in Arnold Circus seems to be a lot of the 'right things' going on.

    Helen from Down under and over a little bit to the right or is it left?

  9. I was wondering if you were designing the circus acts as metaphors for your own life as you juggle all your various tasks. I bet some days you feel like you're upside down and balancing on your nose and I'm sure you've put out quite a few 'fires' in your lifetime. Haven't we all?!
    Love this, Nadine: the colors, the pencil strokes---that purplish border design you have going one is esp. cool!
    So glad you didn't put clowns in---I do not like clowns---find them strange and scary.
    Rest now, tiny wolf>:>)

  10. Oh how talented this creature is. How refined. One of a kind. A brilliant spirit. I am entertained, awed at the skill and practice it must have taken to be this brilliant. I tip my hat to this spectacle of awesomeness. You captured it perfectly Nadine. Love this. *hugs* Norma, xo

  11. no idea about the arnold circus, but i love the drawing, and all the careful details. the sustainable neighborhood has me intrigued.
    btw, I too hate captcha - there should be a law against it! :)

  15. Such distinctive artistry! Funny enough, I've worn much maroon, cream and dove grey this past summer. Thankfully I was able to successfully pull off a very subdued 'traveling sense of performers!'
