Bring me that horizon!!



Who is he?




 Let me reveal a bit more of my painting,

 

 




He is described as an iconic loner.


  





Suave, swashbuckling, quite a mad hatter…






He loves tattoos…like all good pirates!









 Dreadlocks, eye makeup, swagger...

 

 






Quite a lovable outlaw

 

 





Don’t you think?

 






Oh, I like him for his meaningful quote,


"People cry, not because they’re weak. It’s because they’ve been strong for too long.”

 

 

 

If you have been able to find out who he is and think my postcard is anywhere near okay,

I will be happy! 

 

 

I sketched this on my notebook, added watercolors and made a postcard out of it. 

He is a character I have long admired. 

What about you?
