Fave...

Greetings Khuram...Great colourful portrait...

Khan looks like a Cool Cat...A great story too...!


Let me requote Shakespeare:

Life is a theatre...

"To buisness or not to buisness...Two sides of the same coin"...

Thank you my dear friend.
Not sure if either of them are connected to theatre in any way, but, taking inspiration from Jim Carrey's Golden Globe speech, 
I would also like to quote the great Shia LaBeouf, who once said,
“I am almost inclined to coin a word and call the appearance fluorescence, from fluor-spar, 
as the analogous term opalescence is derived from the name of a mineral.” 

Irrelevant quote? Very much.  
But, such is life. 
Business as usual.

Fluor-spat and opals...more minerals...!

All the colour pigments of these textiles...are derived from minerals...!

That is why you have to tweek your colour levels…Since…

they do not blend easily…like natural plant dye colours


Irrrelevant...I think not...

It is all Translucent to me...!

Greetings Khuram…I am sure…Jim…Khan…and William are connected…

As are we…

After all…we are all…on the same Globe…

The show must go on...!

Thanks, Eleni! :D
It still looks colorful?
I had actually toned down the colors by minus 4 points because I found them a bit overwhelming. 
And the cats looked a lot more creepier then as well. :lol:

Thank you, my friend. 
I had to tone down the colors a bit because the cats and the saturation started to creep me out a little. :lol:

If that's his whole collection I think he might want to run a 50% off sale to get some customers more than once a year :lol:

This guy has probably amassed a small fortune with that collection of his. :lol:
According to Khan, he makes between 15 to 30 dollars everyday in coin alone! 
And get this: he collected around 200 dollars in just 8 hours on New Years day!!
