Count Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy

Since I've been working my way through War and Peace I thought I'd have a go at caricaturing the great man himself. He seems to have been a total thorn in the side of the Russian State over his lifetime and stirred up much unrest that probably laid the foundations for the Russian revolution. Tolstoy had 13 children, was a pacifist and was excommunicated by the Russian holy synod. What a guy eh.......?
Judging by his looks though you can tell that Leo wouldn't have been a natural as a stand up comedian.
