after listening to Andrea Jeremiah's wonderful song Idhu Varai from Goa, i had to do a painting of her. she is so beautiful and talented, i hope she sings more sweet songs in the future.

i wanted to keep it painterly with broad strokes, but ended up with more details than actually intended. anyway, blood on the knife is my add.

Desmond Tutu

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, done for the monthly E-Caricatures challenge

Desmond Tutu is widely regarded as "South Africa's moral conscience" and has been described by former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, as "sometimes strident, often tender, never afraid and seldom without humour, Desmond Tutu's voice will always be the voice of the voiceless"

Mark Strong

Mark Strong is an English actor, best known for playing roles in the 2000s films Body of Lies, The Young Victoria, Stardust, Revolver, RocknRolla, and Sherlock Holmes.

I liked him very much in Revolver, looked fabulous with bald head and geek glasses. unfortunately couldn't find a decent pic ref from that movie. so here he is from the Sherlock Holmes film!
