Being class clown is a laughing matter.
This character design was inspired by a good friend, Isaiah Basye, and his story driven imagination. Isaiah's mind is ever churning over new characters, stories, and riddles which captivate adults and children alike. When he purposed doing a character illustration for a poem about a kid who literally took on the roll of class clown, I was eager to begin sketching.
