The Greatest Show on Earth!

One of the things I've been up to recently was a show with The Drawn Chorus Collective.

The Greatest show on Earth featured the illustrative imaginings of all the greatest circuses, freak shows and fairs in literature have to offer. 
The circus has been delighting and enthralling audiences for centuries, and with Angela Carter through to Dr. Seuss, Drawn Chorus drew excited crowds into a world of enchantment and wonder. 
“The Greatest Show on Earth” was a collaborative exhibition between seasoned illustrators and new illustrative talent. Displayed at The Gallery on the Corner, the show ran from the 18th to the 23rd of September 2013!

(The show is also now on tour- to see the works for yourself come on down to the Mills Centre! For more info check out our facebook event.)
