This picture was part of an exhibition on the Frankfurt Book Fair 2018 illustrating the characters of the Georgian alphabet. The illustration works with the character S, which looks a bit like a pipe.
So I draw a portrait of the russian dictator Josef Wissarionowitsch Stalin who was a Georgian and a pipe smoker. Probably the most famous character from Georgia.

Detail of the original ink drawing on Schöllerhammer G4 paper.
