This Post is a Tribute to the Graphic Novel , 'V for Vendetta' and the Movie of the same name (In your spare time please read or watch). A post that might not feel relevant to many today, but which will surely make one wonder in the years to come. For those who have had the patience to read so far but who do not have the time to read a Novel or watch a movie, I deliver to you few of the quotes/ dialogues from the script. ( Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental). "Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there?" . “Behind this mask there is more than just flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea... and ideas are bulletproof.”. “People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.” "Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission." "We have had a string of embezzlers, frauds,liars and lunatics making a string of catastrophic decisions..." "How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others..." "....if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror." "War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. ” "....remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words—they are perspectives” "But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me ..." #vforvendetta#guyfawkes#digitaldrawing#digitalartist#digitalpainting#digitalart#sketchbook#sketches#deathofagreatnation#artoftheday#art#artistsoninstagram#farmer#india#development#sketchoftheday#nation#soldier#revolution#future#justice#freedom
We came across this rather tired, run-down building in Paris tucked almost behind others. But its freestanding position gave it a grandeur and I hope better days are ahead. A challenge with subtler colours compared to other watercolours I have done, but just as enjoyable.
