Eat Your Art Out V

New piece for an upcoming silent art auction: Eat Your Art Out V, for the Angel City Roller Girls, a roller derby group from LA. The event will be hosted by Titmouse Inc, and the Opening/Auction will take place February 25th!

The theme is 'Carnival After Dark,' where the gallery will be transformed into a bustling, traveling carnival from the early 1900s. After scouring through tons of photos from late 1800s to early 1900s of carnival performers (and circus performers) I was awed by a few images that depicted women with lions. These women looked so incredibly young, child-like even. It really blew me away that large, genuinely ferocious animals, were hanging around with young women (girls, really) and their cherubic faces.
