1969: Brotherhood

While I was sifting through the archives I found this... drawn by yours truly in 1969. I was eight years old and tuning in to the world around me. We had lost Martin Luther King on April 4th, 1968 and that was a big topic in school. Teachers helped us understand what had happened and what MLK stood for. Those lessons helped inspire me to think big and believe that the best was yet to come.

We need some brotherhood now, too...this is just as pertinent today as in the the 60's! It's good to still own some of your "original" art. I think my mom still has everything I've ever drawn!

It is amazing how few pieces of early art exist for most people. You're lucky to have a mom who knew to store it in the "vault." Hopefully she has some on display!
