London: Johnny Depp has painted a picture of Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards surrounded by cigarette rolling papers.

The 48-year-old has amassed a huge collection of artwork and a collection of rare manuscripts in his mansion in Hertfordshire, East England.

"I don`t know how Johnny gets everything done. With the books, it isn`t just a first edition of T. S. Eliot, it`s the manuscript. He showed me the first edition of `Les Fleurs Du Mal` inscribed by Baudelaire," quoted Depp as saying.

"I couldn`t believe it. Then when I got home, I found Johnny had slipped it in my suitcase," he added.
