ACEO Clown Portrait #156 "Sir Winston Pickles"

ACEO Clown Portrait #156 "Sir  Winston  Pickles" 
2 ½” x 3 ½” (64 x 89 mm), 2020

ACEO Clown Portrait #156 is inspired by very unique  a clown comedian "Sir Winston Pickles" from Sebastian, Florida, US. But originally he is from Hull, East Yorkshire, UK. On his website's about page I read "Pickles says he likes to think of his character as a unique fusion of Mr Bean, Willy Wonka and Laurel & Hardy all rolled into one, as all these people have inspired him tremendously and shaped his life." After watching his YouTube clips actually I really liked his dark humor and fantastic clown make-up as a comic. Check it out his YouTube Channel and Instagram page
