CHAPLIN by Rafael Albuquerque


I know he is a cliche from silent movies, but Chaplin was the king. My oldest memory of him was in my mother's notepad with his image on the cover.I think i was 6, or 7, so i used to draw him when i was a kid.

Like this guy since forever. Its good to draw him again.

Hope you enjoy.

Rafa.

It makes it special because you have a story to tell. Doesn't matter if it's cliche or people say Buster Keaton was better.

My first silent movie memory is Nosferatu. First silent movie I ever saw. I was maybe 19, but it was magical. A different world opened up.
