Creative duo of digital artists Ransom & Mitchell, known for visual trickery and arcane illusions, have painstakingly crafted their Rough & Ready Sideshow in remembrance of the once-common traveling carnivale. It is a menagerie of timeless tales and rare specimens lovingly recreated and saved from the obscurity of antiquity. We strive to give our subjects a position of strength and ownership of their caricature to challenge society’s lingering social stigmas.
Ransom & Mitchell sought to honor the many familiar characters by painstakingly recreating their personas using unique costuming, exquisite make-up and hair design, and sourced vintage props. Each scene has a custom painted canvas backdrop to further the narrative and in some cases the artists created additional sets and props using their own unique blend of photo-realist digital painting and 3D CG to produce items that could not possibly exist. Additionally, each image has a custom created faux paper mat, resplendent with filigree and aging to replicate the style of old cabinet cards from days gone by. For display, the pieces are custom printed by the artists on metallic paper to further the feeling of old glowy, tintypes from yesteryear.
