Extremo the Clown

For a living, Scott Campbell paints advertisements on the windows of Portland businesses. Everyone in town has seen his car, covered in gargoyles, with a water fountain in the back. He’s also the artist Extremo the Clown, a giggling madman who passes out red foam noses at a gallery opening of his bizarre, airbrushed creations.
