This portrait pays tribute to the iconic actor Robin Williams, best known for his role as Mork from Ork. Little did I know, as a viewer of the series, that behind the comedic genius lay a tragic figure grappling with depression throughout his life. There's a poignant resonance for me as I sometimes find myself in a similar emotional space—outwardly humorous, yet harboring inner feelings of sadness and stress. The intent of this portrait is to encapsulate the vibrant joy Williams brought into my life through his comedic films, particularly those that I cherished in my childhood. It aims to reflect the colorful happiness that his performances contributed to my world.
