I have always adored the ephemera that attaches to the Circus. I have never, mind you, enjoyed visits to the ring – in my childhood I found them boring or hated the way they treated the animals, and the slapstick never made me laugh – but give me an old ticket stub or the image of a clown and I’m yours for life!

This collage comprises a mixture of elements, some from my own collection (textured background and boy pierrot), a couple from The Graphics Fairy (lady on horse and cyclist) and a couple from Wikimedia (circus poster and aerialists).

  • Turned out to be rather more than a muscle injury. I’d broken my hip, which put paid to the first six months of this year! Only just starting to get back into RB mode. Hope all is well with you.
