Sketching Dr. King
I'm starting work on a new poster of Martin Luther King; here is a preliminary sketch. As the project progresses, I'll post
my work-in-progress. I've done several illustrations of MLK; my goal here is to do something new and fresh and truly
capture- or try to- his presence, impact and vision. In my lifetime, some of his dreams have come to fruition.
However, the issue of race is still in the news, which is dismaying. I hope as the world melds and progresses, that
race and gender will be past-tense, non-issues. One can hope!
