Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This man's off-centre smile gives a huge amount of character and adds humour to the face. As we get older our faces become less symmetric and in many ways make us more endearing. This always puts me in mind of one of the most beautiful literary quotes ever:

“If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” Roald Dahl, The Twits.
