(No, these are not teachers car pooling to work.)
I cheated a little bit and found some clowncar clip art online to use for inspiration. I did one last year for a circus themed event but it was much smaller and even more important, I didn't like it. So, I conveniently misplaced it. Shhhh, don't tell anyone.
I also started a juggler with the face blank so the kids can put their heads through the face for pictures.
This one of course is not finished, but you can see the process. I do a quick marker sketch, then paint in the bright flat colors. After that, it's all about the finishing touches, shadows, hatching/cross hatching lines, line weight, etc.
Only one more day till the event and much work to do. Wish me luck, I'm probably going to need it, lol.
