Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is best known for his laconic artistry on the pitch, but over the last year or so he's used Facebook to show off the artistic pursuits contained in his sketchbook. At least, the ones that aren't too sensual for social media.
Join us now as we take a look inside the mind of...The Continental. These are the celebrity caricatures of Dimitar Berbatov ...
(Dimitar Berbatov's Facebook page)"When i see something on the web,and i like it,i try to draw it..In this case..one of my favorite hip hop artist..Snoop Dogg..if u like it,i'll put some more:)" -- April 3, 2012
Is there a resemblance between Berbatov's drawing of Snoop Dogg and himself? Either way, spelling out the name in smoke was a nice touch.
"Like i said before,if i see a picture or caricature i like,i try to draw it,to see if i can make it the same...i am just having some fun,and sharing it with you:)......This is the Greatest of them all....2pac:))" -- April 5, 2012
Clearly Dimitar's work here was influenced by the movie Coneheads.
Ending each caption with a double smiley emoticon shows a certain vulnerability behind his work. It's also one of few things he has in common with Andrei Arshavin.
Only in the mind of The Berba would 86-year-old Hugh Hefner have such well defined pecs.
We've definitely seen Berbatov make that facial expression on the left before. These are the characters that have influenced his own style of being.
"Quick drawing..:))..The best movie ever..:))))hahah" -- February 25, 2013
Berbatov's appreciation for The Godfather is well known. He says he learned to speak English by watching those movies.
