An 1880s themed outdoor carnivalesque held in a secret location (the laneway beside the council chambers) in Port Adelaide including puppetry, workshops for kids, roving street performers, cabaret, wine bar, market stalls and food. Children under 12 free. Open until late.
I was given my brief and managed to do a modified portrait of Dr D but any sort of lettering is my downfall. The final effort isn't quite as crooked as the picture above. Taking photos of large canvases isn't easy unless they are propped against a wall and so everything gets a bit skewed. (Mum, mum, it wasn't me. I didn't break the vase). For the other pictures, I started off abiding by the macabre theme, but I tend to be more of a ‘pretty’ painter and my hand just wouldn't obey my instructions. Fortunately, I was given dispensation to veer towards ‘expect the unexpected’ instead. In place of depictions of palmistry and exposed brains, I decided to show Dr D Clutter in his many guises.
Dr D Clutter is able to balance on stilts juggling the moon and stars. Not all of us can do this.
Dr D Clutter's alter-ego is a lady-man. Here he is taking his pet ladybird for a walk along the 1880's shore, which I believe looked as shown.
