Johnny Depp continues to earn a lot of money without even acting in films. Today, the Pirates of the Caribbean star has moved on to painting, having completed a series of hand-painted portraits on silk via one of London’s galleries.
The Friends & Heroes II series included four images – actors River Phoenix and Heath Ledger, musician Bob Marley and writer Hunter S. Thompson. “Each of the paintings is Johnny’s personal remembrance of their characters; about how they revealed themselves to him,” the actor’s job description reads. He took photographs as the basis for portraits, then filled the images with the “energy” of hand painting. Taking into account that the portraits were reproduced, total revenues were $5.4 million.
