Burny The Clown Only Did His Act Once – True Story

In late August, I actually dreamed this. Not of an actual person dressed up like a clown burning, but rather someone was telling me the story of Burny the Clown and how he had this amazing act where he used fired but he only did his act once because he didn’t plan it out very well. It was such a weird dream even for me that I drew a sketch before my morning coffee made the dream fade and then I have been working on this for the past week or so.
The story of this artwork will be sent and original sketch too if you want it.

See him now and original sketch is also in the listing : Jo Potocki Funky Folk Art Original Canvas Painting Burny The Clown Did Act Once | eBay

Leta the Clown – ACEO Coulrophobia Inducing Clown Art

I’ve been obsessing for a while to do a clown doll. A really, obnoxious, ugly clown doll.
So this is the first sketch I did on an ACEO and it’s pretty much how I envision the final doll.
For some reason it also reminded me of my ex-mother-in-law so I named it “Leta”.
I know she’d be totally honored to know I think of her as a coulrophobia-inducing clown.

And I love making Artist Trading Cards or ACEO’s (
Art Cards, Editions and Originals) – you’ve been warned.
Size : 2.5-inches by 3.5-inches
