A sad clown on a Sunday

Oh I had such grands plans. On Friday or maybe Thursday I checked out what was happening in my art blog world decided "YES! Sunday Sketches and Mr Toast! - I can combine"  As I sat and waited on a class on Friday I did a rough sketched for what I would then do the pencil drawing for SS and then do all the cutting out and do-da's for Toast - I was planning on doing a card with cut work. But alas it has so far gone the way of my recent IF work.  Since today, instead of doing the card, I was dealing with some colouring of digital stamps in between I do not really recall now what I did today -... oh yes it was ironing clothes -. So my contribution to Sunday sketches hosted by our darling Sophia is this sad clown. His lines are drawn in  illustrator which was then coloured with watercolour pencils, and then of course he was cut out as I should really attempt to make a crafty card with him - hence the reason he looks a bit strange.
Cheers
