Jean-Paul Sartre

“We do not judge the people we caricature”

“We do not know what we draw and yet we are responsible for what we caricature - that is the fact, dude”

“Pencils are loaded pistols”

“It is only by our uploads that we are important.”

“One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the rubbing out. You are - your caricature, and nothing else. Deal with it - Pah!”

Those are some of the wise words that the great Gallic thinker gave to us in our endless grapple with the graphite, my deep thinking friends. It is with this in mind that I decided to capture his fizzog in vector. That and the fact that he's got a face that screams out for it.

We salute you JP!
