As directed, I started with my word list, which lead to an idea map. My mind kept going to the concept of a bustling, colorful circus and all the craziness that it entails. I feel that there are many 'LOUD' aspects to the circus, in both the literal and figurative sense and that is what I hope to create in my illustration.
I like my color palette but feel as though it isn't as 'LOUD' as it should be. I want red to be one of the colors, but feel I may have to re-work the others.
