I found this needlepoint piece at the Cathedral of Junk here in Austin (more on that below). I was immediately drawn to him because - obviously - he's a form of needlework, and because he was strangely pristine in the environment.
I've always been a little creeped out by clowns, but something about this guy makes me really like him. Maybe it falls into the same category as "so ugly, it's cute" ... he's "so creepy, he's cool."
* The Cathedral of Junk is a fantastic backyard "playscape" of junk here in Austin. You can read more about it here. The kids and I went for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and could have spent hours there if it hadn't been so insanely hot and humid that day. I plan to go back in the fall when we can explore even longer. Here are a few more pictures from the Cathedral of Junk. If you are ever in Austin, you *must* visit it!
