I made this for my friend because it's her birthday today! The dude is Jacques Derrida, who is a big name in her field for his theory of deconstructivism. She has a huge massive crush on him, despite his deadness and old white guy-ness, but at least she knows what she likes.
The French means 'there is nothing without context', which is like his signature axiom. Whatever that means, man, I don't know -- I'm a Said girl, myself, so ask me about Orientalism sometime. But I can draw Derrida, and that's all that matters!
EDIT: friend in question corrects my wikipedia-then-halfway-remembered-translation: "The text actually usually translated to say "There is no outside-the-text," and it means that even interpretations or criticisms of text ARE text itself. Roughly and basically."
Photo reference used for Derrida, obviously.
