THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Cartoon as a stage art. Might sound ambitious. But, S. Jithesh, a cartoonist and an advocate by profession, has been taking cartoon to this new level - through poems and anecdotes. Along with displaying his inimitable ability in making 50 celebrity faces in just five minutes.
This extraordinary show, which has now completed over 1,000 stages, will be displayed at the summer camp for children going on at St Thomas School, Mukkolakkal, on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
‘Vara vega vismayam’, would display his speed in making faces. ‘‘The important aspect is, I interact with the audience while I make drawings. My focus will be reinterpreting anecdotes and poems in the present context. Like, when Kadammanitta says ‘Poochayanente Dukham’, I reinterpret it as Pinarayi and Achuthanandan fighting it over Munnar issue, referring to the ‘Munnar cats’.’’ Jithesh, 38, is a native of Pathanamthitta.
