The portrait that inspired Jack Sparrow
October 30th, 2006 under Paul Karslake, Pirates of the Caribbean. [ Comments: none ]


A portrait of Keith Richards which inspired Johnny Depp’s character in Pirates of the Caribbean will be unveiled to the public today. The two-metre tall canvas depicts the Rolling Stones guitarist as a swashbuckling pirate complete with cutlass. It was painted by artist Paul Karslake, the brother-in-law of Richards’ bandmate Ronnie Wood, and was seen by Depp. It goes on display at London’s Artisan Gallery.

OMG that really looks like Jack Sparrow, and now it makes more sense why Johnny Depp was so insistent that Keith Richards play his dad!
