Death of the Clown

An illustration supporting an article about the decline of the clown industry. 

The basis of the article is focused around the interview of professional clown, Mattie Faint. He explains that people are generally not interested in clowns anymore, and that parents regularly inquire if he would perform as a character from the animated film ‘Frozen’, rather than his usual clown act. 

He also mentions that children and adults are scared of clowns, and that he can no longer walk into a hospital without frightening someone half to death!
