Saurabh Singh does not believe in freebies. Which makes most people on Instagram think: he wants MONEY for art? How dare he, sir? How. dare. he.
A self-taught graphic designer and “part time engineer”, this 23-year-old’s work has been popping up all over the Instagram stories of some of your favourite standup comedians. Because what’s more flattering than a vivid digital portrait of your own good self?
Scroll through his account like we did, and you’ll find a ton of celebrity portraits from Sadhguru and Arnab Goswami to Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Ranveer Singh to Cardi B and Ronaldo. Until you finally spot a trend—over the year, Singh has developed some serious love for standup comics. Here’s taken a stab at A-listers like Varun Grover, Aditi Mittal, Vir Das and Kunal Kamra, covered the whole Comicstaan gang, and even seems to have been commissioned the vectorisation of the entire SNG collective.
