One audition with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus was an exciting opportunity, which could have altered my life. Willing to become a part of the greatest show on earth, I was ready to drop everything and entertain. During my audition I did a juggling skit, which earned a call back but not fortunate to be picked. Over the couple of years after my tryout I have different thoughts about my initial decision. Thoughts that run through my head have me second guess how enjoyable the circus would be from the inside out?
I think about it more then not, and I would like to relieve my feelings of disappointment and questioning of what my possibilities were if I would have been picked. Having missed out on this experience, to show my gratitude to this organization in thinking that I was one of the best. These woodblocks are to show the eyes of the circus, the eyes that could have potentially have been my eyes. I have created a five woodblock series all at a four-color reduction of foreshortened images of the circus.
