At the end of July, as I narrow my focus on what I want to pursue in my performing, I'm traveling to the Celebration Barn Theatre in Maine to study Eccentric Performing with Avner Eisenberg and Julie Goell. This has me thinking a lot about clowns – who is a clown, what makes a clown, what can I learn from clowns of the past (my favorite clowns) – which brought me to someone I've wanted to draw for a long time: Lucille Ball. Who hasn't watched at least one episode of I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show, or Here's Lucy?
This illustration comes from a personal favorite I Love Lucy episode: The Operetta. Lucy plays Camille, The Queen of the Gypsies; a performance I can watch over and over again.
Here's a clip from the episode:
