Willie the clown.

I do believe it’s created by: Emmett Kelly

This clown belongs to: Scott Schneider

Every time I see this clown I just want to photograph him. In person this clown looks so darn sad.

As you can tell he’s a very very old little hobo clown.

Warmly, Rita

    Your on your way to illustrating a poignant children’s story Rita…. You should use your great powers to move this guy through a charming adventure. And of course your mastery of palette’s perfect to grab and hold their attention.

  • Ted well thank you! Maybe I will create my own clown and create my own children’s book. I really enjoy hearing from you and happy to hear what you have to say…thank you!
