Peter Sellers from ‘The Party’

I am trying to do a series of Peter Sellers sketches like what I did with a Panel of Rajnikanth cartoons- how an actor ages?. Here is a pencil sketch (will color these at a later date when I am done with the series) of Peter Sellers as Harundi Bakshi from the movie the Party (1968). My father and I share a love for this movie. I remember laughing uncontrollably watching this movie with my father when I was a kid. Watching this movie makes me feel like a kid again. Peter Sellers was a genius who loved studying accents and different cultures. This is a very funny and sympathetic portrayal of a clueless indian man trying to make it in Hollywood. This movie is priceless! One of my favorite lines from the movie-

A very angry man shouts at Bakshi (Peter Sellers)- Who do you think you are??!!

Bakshi- In india we do not think who we are, we know who we are.
