aerialist #3

From 1890.

I think I’m doing this series of posts on images of trapeze artists/ tightrope walkers because the word “aerialist” is so cool.

That image is amazing. The graphic design is striking. I like the awkwardness of the poses. Also, the situations are really energetic. It reminds me of superhero art like this Jack Kirby bit:

Jon, that “troupe of aerialists” phrase made me laugh out loud. Thanks for passing this along.

Thinking of your “active resume” concept of a blog from a few years back, it turns out that that’s what this site is for me as a musician. It doesn’t substitute for things like CDs and a formal bio, like I thought it might when I started. But it is great for showing my bona fides.
