The Circus can be a fun place, but also kinda weird. There are so many things going on at once, and with hundreds of kids jacked up on cotton candy it can also be loud.

I tried to create a balance between the wierdness, and the fun of a circus.

This is my first submission in a long time. Hope you enjoy it.

Wowwww. This is slightly creepy in a very cool way. A lot going on. Really interesting. Nicely done!

Tangentially, it reminds me of a horror novel that a friend of mine wrote; the main character's father was killed at the circus just after saying "Welcome to the circus, Sebastian" and so that phrase winds up recurring in different contexts later in the novel.

This design kind of just hints at the slightly creepy/weird aspects of the circus, without going the cliche "scary clown" route.


Also, this "dustball" is pretty obviously a troll. Pay no attention.

Very nicely done. I love the positioning you've given the lion, it is at once playful and full of menace.

There's lots of great designs on Threadless that just don't work as t-shirts. This works a treat. 5 from me.
