We all are like soap bubbles as well! Some big some small, all made of the same matter, all shine in same yet different ways, all take their own random direction that cannot be exactly predicted and in the end, sooner or later, all are destined to vanish.

Captain Von Trapp

Actor Christopher Plummer as the charismatic Captain Von Trapp of ‘The Sound of Music

This 1965 musical drama is one of my most fav movies and was inspired by a real family of Captain Baron von Trapp, an Austro-Hungarian Navy officer.

Christopher Plummer (born December 13, 1929) is a Canadian actor and is the oldest person ever to win an Academy Award for acting.

Michael Schumacher

Wishing Michael Schumacher a speedy recovery

Michael Schumacher (born 3 January 1969) is a retired German racing driver who raced in Formula One for Benetton and Ferrari. Widely regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers and regarded by some as the greatest of all time. In December 2013, Schumacher suffered a traumatic brain injury in a skiing accident. He was placed in a medically induced coma for six months until 16 June 2014. Then in September 2014, he was relocated to his home where he continues to receive medical treatment and rehabilitation privately.

This sketch is my first work with ‘Faber Castell Polychromos’, I used ‘Staedtler Luna’ before that. The shades in Polychromos are different than those in Luna. I took me some time to pick ones suitable for skin tones. However, as these are oil based, these blend easily and do not pose the issue of ‘wax bloom’.
