Illustration Friday

Black and White- Marcel and Mime. I performed stage and street mime for years. I had met Mr. Marceau in 1983 when he did a show in Syracuse, NY. His inspiration was my reason for choosing this unusual vocation. I became quite popular in my day. I also was a clown and toured with several children's theatre shows.

Can see being 'dramatic' helps with producing the drama of black and white :)

I always loved "Silent Movie" when he had the only line in the film: "NO!"

(I just mimed out "great picture.)

This is really quite wonderful! And I was a theatre major in college, so I appreciate just how challenging it must have been to be a mime and a clown. But as you enjoyed it, I'm betting you were good at it!
