Sideshow Spectacular by David Eichenberger – Part Two

By CAM Raleigh | October 22, 2012

We're excited to reveal another great illustration from local artist David Eichenberger, who created a series of drawings as part of the "Sideshow Spectacular" theme for Fright at the Museum 2012. The images tell the tale of a traveling carnival crew. Below, we present the second drawing and installment of the story as told by the artist himself...



The bearded lady ran away from home at the age of 17 with a busted lip, the clothes on her back and a 5 o'clock shadow forming on her face. She didn't know where she was headed; all she knew was that no man would ever strong-arm her, and she wasn't shaving any more. She was fine with being a "freak," in fact, one would say she embraced it. Besides, it got her out of having to marry some clod kicker from Topeka. The next five years she worked the freak show and circus carnival circuit. It wasn't an easy living, but it gave her a chance to see the world. She was happy traveling until someone caught her eye: the brave yet, strangely enough, shy daredevil. As suddenly as it began, her nomadic life had lost its charm.

Stay tuned for more installments of our dramatic tale. And don't forget to get your own creepy carnival on at our October 27 Fright at the Museum fundraiser bash. Tickets on sale now at www.camraleigh.org/fright

Sideshow Spectacular by David Eichenberger

By CAM Raleigh | October 15, 2012

Local artist David Eichenberger lends his talent to this year's Fright at the Museum event theme, Sideshow Spectacular, with a series of 6 drawings depicting the magical and quirky tale of a traveling carnival crew.

Catch a glimpse of these drawings around town on Fright at the Museum materials and also here, as we post the whimsical illustrations on our blog. Designed as a series, we begin with the first drawing and the start of the tale as told by the artist himself...

The carnival's magician has no real power; the only thing he's ever been really good at is stealing and spinning wild tales. So when he pick-pocketed the old gypsy's magic wand in the last town, he knew he had something special at last. With his new power he set his eyes on the one thing he has always wanted: the brave daredevil's girl--the bearded lady. A desire not born of love... but of lust.

Stay tuned for more installments of our dramatic tale.  And don't forget to get your own creepy carnival on at our October 27 Fright at the Museum fundraiser bash. Tickets on sale now at www.camraleigh.org/fright
