Pre-orders are available HERE and they are expected to ship by October 4.
“The clowns kept me from spiraling out during all the uncertainty. They kept me from sinking into a deep depression or experiencing crippling anxiety. The clowns were perfect for that — even the dark ones.”
He also added:
“I’d get up every day and have my glass of water, two tangerines and a cup of coffee. Then I’d crack the sketchbook open. In my notes on my phone, I probably had 10 or 15 clown ideas I could pull from if I hadn’t thought of something the night before. The thing that I came to find out is that anything is clown-able. The clown is such an icon that you can turn anything into a clown.”
