I've never quite figured out what's up with the blind jesters. (I'm not even sure if they're CALLED the blind jesters.) They seem to be a multi-species bunch, they all wear checkerboard-edged robes that cover their eyes, Quick the donkey may be one (but he's a neophyte if he is) but that's about all I know.
I suspect they're an order akin to mendicant monks, and they find a lot of things amusing. I'm also not entirely sure I want to see under the hoods. I mean, it's probably nothing, they seem like a mostly good-natured bunch but....well...I can't completely rule out that there's something uncomfortable under there.
They wander into Gearworld occasionally, but they aren't from there.
I wonder if they know the Monks of Perdition (or hell, maybe they ARE the Monks of Perdition...that would make a certain kind of sense...)
8 x 8 mixed media on gessoboard. Over the years I've done a fair number of animals in this sort of costume, and I'm still no closer to figuring out where they're all from.
