The Dalai Lama walks up to a New York hot dog vendor and says 'make me one with everything'.

I haven't uploaded anything for ages, and I just felt like doing a caricature, and since it was the old chaps 75th birthday this week, and I was always struck by his longish face, I thought what the hey, and so viola.

Dude, I'm Jewish.

eh, no idea what that's supposed to mean, I should probably post a picture of Mark Hamil :D
'The penny dropped' is an expression, meaning 'you got it'.

"The Penny Dropped" means "Grab it before it rolls away" to my family.

nah, I keep on forgetting that some of the english expressions are a local thing, I kinda always assume all english speaking people use the same expressions, but you guys probably would just go wtf if I said something "it is the bee's knees"* or "they are telling porkie pies"**, or "I'll have a butchers hook at it"***


*it is the business- ie it is great
**they are telling lies
***I'll have a look

Excellent digi painting, mate. When I used to work at the Scotsman Newspaper in Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, I saw him arrive, to stay at the hotel across the road. It was pretty cool seeing him.

I would have loved to meet/see him, as he is one of only a handful of leaders I have any respect for. Painting his caricature is a good opportunity to study his features in minute detail, and you can learn a lot about a person by how they look, you can judge a book by its cover, as long as that cover is quite old and revealing of daily epxression lines :D
