HawHaw James– Self-portraits and visual inventiveness
HawHawJames isn’t a professional clown– he’s a painter, artist, and (according to his bio) a drag queen and born again Christian. All that’s unimportant, though, because I think his latest project is delightful.
He’s been doing some amazing trompe l’oeil’s, using his face as a canvas, and then photographing the results. These self-portraits are witty, clever, and very well done.
I’ve posted a few of them below– but you should check out his whole collection on Flickr. These are portraits of his own face, and he’s got a whole bunch of other interesting ones.
In clown work, we talk a lot about visual inventiveness- here it is in spades!
