Arundhati Roy

Today's portrait is my 9th page in my Sketchbook Project 2018 sketchbook. It's a portrait of writer and human rights and environmental campaigner Arundhati Roy, whose second book The Ministry of Utmost Happiness has just been published. Her first book, The God of Small Things, is undoubtedly one of the best books I've ever read and I've had to wait a whole 20 years for another and I'm still waiting to read this one. Hardbacks hurt my arthritic wrists too much to hold and I want to read it in real book form so I'm resisting the kindle edition and holding out for paperback, but I might give in and buy the ebook and the paperback because I'm really not sure I can wait much longer…
