It is generally claimed that the face reflects the true character of a person.
I have been thinking about this bland statement for some time now and planning a Portrait series based on the same.
So, finding myself with a couple of hours to spare yesterday, coupled with a general reluctance to work of any sort ( after the last 2 days worth of crazy art I’ve had to indulge in ), I created 2 portraits.
One is of Johnny Depp in his role of ‘Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber’ in the film bearing the same name.
The other is of Ishant Sharma, the lanky speedster who had recently been an infallible member of the Indian cricket squad but of late is not finding the right rhythm, pace, bounce, sense… or, for that matter, an assured place in either the Indian or Kolkata Knight Riders squad. We can only say to him – ‘Shanti hi’ . Good times will surely come for those who kep on trying… harder and faster!
