Abu Kalabsha

So after posting Abu Antar's comic-book style portrait that I painted last year, I was asked by many to do more portraits of other Syrian TV characters in the same style. That's why I finally decided to do Abu Kalabsha!

Abu Kalabsha was introduced in the early seventies on the sitcom Sah El Nom as a police commissioner who always boasted about his detective skills but was almost always outsmarted by the show's main protagonist, Ghawwar. Abu Kalabsha was played by the late Syrian actor Abdul Latif Fathi.
